PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is a new DX10 title that features its own proprietary graphics engine currently in development. The game is a combination of Real Time Strategy and Simulation. You have the ability to control the entire crew or just a single member. Play as the German, Russian or Allied navies, and prove your mettle on the open seas.

 

Video Settings:

  • Anti-Aliasing: x0

SLI scaling, and Crossfire as well, in Knight of the Sea ranges from horrible to null. Obviously, I am running into processor limitations, which would explain why the scores really start to fly with the Core 2 Quad clocked higher. XFX's pair of GTX260s can only equal the GTX280, but they manage to keep a 30% performance lead on the ATI 4870X2. Once again, overclocking the processor leads to a significant improvement, allowing them to cruise to the top of our graphs and gain another 20% on the red team's dual GPU card. Things don't look quite as good when you compare the overclocked SLI setup to a single GTX260 stock configuration - SLI scores at the very best 18% higher.
