Real-World Direct3D Benchmarks
Max Payne is a new generation DirectX 7/8 game. This game is based on Hardware T&L advancements as well as many other features of the Intel Pentium 4 and Athlon XP.
Max Payne is not coded for SMP operations, thus the Hyper-Threading is wasted on this application.
Aquanox is the latest instalment of our benchmark software. This game is based heavily on DirectX 8 and 8.1 advancements and is designed to stress video cards to their ultimate limit, in all the best D3D benchmark to date.
Aquanox benefits from the Hyper-Threading systems, being based on DX 8.1 - more power gives better results this time around.
DroneZmark is based on the popular DroneZ game engine. DroneZmark incorporates a looping demo and execution engine to test your system performance.
While DroneZ the game itself might be based on a SMP code, DroneZmark isn't and does not benefit from the extra CPU power.
