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.
While being a GeForce 4 branded card, the core of the MX440 8x is still based on the NV17 (GeForce 2) architecture, and not fully supportive of DX8. This alone drops the GeForce 4 MX440 8x down a few notches in DirectX 8.x games and applications.
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 is very heavy on even the most powerful 3D accelerator. nVidia's MX440 8x being somewhat under powered in DirectX 8.x gives it a handicap coming into this benchmark, and with ATI's strong presence in DirectX shows the MSI card in a poor light.
Unreal Tournament 2003
Unreal Tournament 2003 continues the success that Unreal Tournament generated as an online game and benchmark. UT2003 pulls all of its weight on to the 3D and Memory subsystems, pushing graphics reality to the maximum is its game, and you need some serious power to pull this one off
Once again, due to the lack of DirectX 8.x features from nVidia and MSI, it slows things down and gives ATI the lead, again.
