TweakTown strives to provide our readers with a reasonable expectation of what they can expect in terms of real-world performance in our gaming tests. Instead of testing all systems and titles at, say, 1280x768 with 4xAA and comparing framerates, we determine a particular system's maximum playable settings and report those settings along with the resultant framerates.
Even though this makes direct comparison between systems a bit more difficult, we feel it best reflects how the typical gamer uses a system. Most players aren't interested in getting framerates in the 100s at 1280x768 if the title is still playable at 1680x1050.
And now, the gaming benchmarks, where we expect a HD 5970-equipped system to really shine.
Futuremark 3DMark Vantage
3DMark Vantage is an industry-standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, designed for Windows 7 and Vista. It includes two graphics tests, two CPU tests, several feature tests, and support for the latest hardware.
3DMark Vantage is based on a rendering engine developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10.
The LAN Warrior II racked up a score of 22527 3DMarks, earning 24212 in the GPU category and 18637 in the CPU category.
We run this benchmark in "Performance" mode to get an apples-to-apples data set across various systems, as opposed to the gaming benchmarks, where we push a system's hardware to its maximum abilities.
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Using Arkham Asylum's built-in benchmarking tool (included in patch 1.1), we achieved maximum playable settings at 1920x1080 with 16xAA and "Very High" performance settings.
Frame rates were as follows: 86 max, 33 min, with an average of 61.
Far Cry 2
At 1920x1080, with 8xAA and "Ultra High" texture settings, the LAN Warrior II cranked out an average of 89 FPS, with a max of 159 and a min of 30.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
At 1920x1080, we pulled in an average of 77 fps, with a maximum of 109 and a minimum of 41.
The LAN Warrior II churned out 258FPS on average, with highs and lows of 460 and 131, respectively; all at 1920x1080, with a full 16xAA and "High" textures.
