Testing:

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 1024 x 768 progressing to 'Extreme' at 1920 x 1200. 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:

  • All default settings in each preset level
  • Entry 1024 x 768
  • Performance 1280 x 1024
  • High 1680 x 1050
  • Extreme 1920 x 1200

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whereas the Pure Black underperformed in 3DMark 06 it made up for that in the 3DMark Vantage testing.
