Testing – Gaming
Here is the section we know most of your were waiting for, gaming performance! We will be testing the system in 4 real games. For reference we will be running the system through these benchmarks at 3 different resolutions: 1920 x 1080, 1680 x 1050 and 1280 x 720.
Up first we have BioShock Infinite. BioShock Infinite was released in 2013 and follows veteran of the U.S. Cavalry and now hired gun, Booker DeWitt. He has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. The game has a built-in benchmarking tool and we used the Ultra setting.
One of the biggest games to recently come out was Battlefield 4. We have chosen a small scene that includes action and many shadows. The scene is below.
We are using Fraps to record FPS and we run through this scene three times. We are using the Ultra preset in the game.
Sleeping Dogs came out at the end of 2012 and is an open world game where you are an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads. This game also has a built-in benchmark. It was run on the Extreme setting with all other settings turned up all the way.
Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time and Shootdodge effects, full integration of Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games.
Settings the graphics at it highest setting (everything up all the way) we set up a benchmarking sequence were we run around the first level of the game. You can see the benchmarking sequence below.
Again we recorded FPS with Fraps, here are the results.
