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 in FSAA mode really sucks the power out of the video cards. The Ti4200 is able to run Max Payne at a totally playable level, while the Ti500 GF3 just scrapes in the playable area.




Aquanox is the latest installment to 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 even more heavily reliant on the 3D, and it shows in this test. The Ti500 GF3 is what I would class as not totally playable at 1024x768 32-bit FSAA 4x. Ti4200 just makes it in, Ti4600 easy.




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



In the final test, the Gainward is still in the middle of the pack, able to take out the competition.
