Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro "Ultimate Edition" Review (Page 10)

Code Creatures

Code Creatures is a Synthetic benchmark based on DirectX 8, which gives users the chance to see another highly involved benchmark program. Focusing on two elements, Grass and Water, video cards are stressed to the limit resulting in quite low scoring benchmarks. Users get to see a more intensive side of DirectX 8 thanks to the engine behind Code Creatures.

I have found that pretty much all cards will result in lower FPS rates in Code Creatures than in almost any other benchmark we use. Even with a lower number of frames per second, we are again seeing some very impressive gains with the 9800 Pro board. We're talking about overall increases of 15-16% in all resolutions. At a 1024 resolution, we see a performance increase of 26% in the water test. I ran the tests again to make sure that this was accurate and the results came up the same. So you can see that you can expect some hefty increases in pretty much any game or application that you use.
