3. Benchmark settings
- 3D Mark 05 (v1.3.0)
For all the tests we used the default settings of 3DMark05 as following:
- 3D Mark 06 (v1.1.0)
Again we left all the default settings:
- Half Life 2: Episode 2
- Testbed DirectX10
- 3DMark Vantage v1.0.1
We used the three built-in "Performance" and "Extreme" benchmarks in various resolutions.
- Company Of Heroes (v1.7.1)
We used the build-in benchmark with all details maxed out.
- Crysis v1.2.0
We used the hocbench Crysis benchmark tool for three resolutions, 1280x1024, 1680x1050 and finally 1920x1200. We run the benchmark software with the details set at both "High" and "Very High" in order to find out at which resolution the game is playable.
- Crysis WarHead v1.00
We used the FRAMEBuffer benchmark tool for three resolutions, 1280x1024, 1680x1050 and finally 1920x1200. All the possible quality levels were set in order to get an idea of what the graphics card offer in various resolutions.
- Far Cry 2 v1.0.0
We used the the built-in benchmarking utility and maxed out all the visual details, under both DX9/DX10 settings and up to 16x AA/16x AF.
