Halo PC - Combat Evolved

 

Halo PC is new to us at TweakTown. Though we have used it in a couple of benchmarks in the past, it has now found a permanent place in our Benchmark Suite. This is simply due to its support for the latest DirectX 9 API's to put some more stress on the system to determine the best of the best.

 

 

 

Again when the resolution goes up the Intel I875P chipset takes the crown, but not by a huge margin.
