Featuring all-new game tests, this benchmark is for use with Vista-based systems. "There are two all-new CPU tests that have been designed around a new 'Physics and Artificial Intelligence-related computation.' CPU test two offers support for physics related hardware." There are four preset levels that correspond to specific resolutions. "Entry" is 1024x768 progressing to "Extreme" at 1920x1200. Of course, each preset can be modified to arrange any number of user designed testing. For our testing, I will use the four presets at all default settings.
- Settings (each preset): Default
- Entry: 1024x768
- Performance: 1280x1024
- High: 1680x1050
- Extreme: 1920x1200
- PhysX: Off
The ASUS EAH 4770 Formula pulls ahead of the GTS 250 from the performance preset on up and the 9800GTX+ at the Extreme preset. Overclocking gives the ASUS Formula the muscle to compete with all of the cards from the performance preset to the Extreme preset.
