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.
- All default settings in each preset level
- Entry 1024x768
- Performance 1280x1024
- High 1680x1050
- Extreme 1920x1200
Once again the "Dark Knight" is outperformed by almost every card except the ENGTS 250. The EAH4870 did, however, beat the Sapphire 4870 at the lowest settings. That being said, the ENGTS 250 does beat the EAH4870 at the lowest settings, but this was of course an abnormally high score. The overclock only improved the "Dark Knight's" score by a few hundred, which didn't help it defeat any opponents.
