Real-World Direct3D Benchmarks

 

Max Payne

 

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 intense enough to take full advantage of the new nForce controller.

 

Aquanox

 

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, on the other hand is very 3D and memory intense so we see the increased scores.

 

DroneZmark

 

DroneZmark is based on the popular DroneZ game engine. DroneZmark incorporates a looping demo and execution engine to test your system performance.

 

 

In the last of our tests, we see that because DroneZmark, like Max Payne isn't as 3D intensive and does not need as much memory bandwidth.
