Windows 7: Star Swarm - A stress test for Mantle and DirectX

Star Swarm - A stress test for Mantle and DirectX

Would anyone else care to give this one a go? Especially someone that can run Mantle, it would be interesting to see the performance differences between Mantle and DirectX on the same system.

Free on Steam only, Star Swarm Stress Test

Run it with the defaults, don't be surprised if each run produces a different result as the scenario is randomly generated (although each ship supposedly has its own AI).

It tells me what I already know, that my generations old CPU is severely bottlenecking my GPU (see the Precision X graphs).

Results are saved as a text file so we're all on our honor.
