Windows 7: Test your gaming performance - free.

26 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x86-64
Test your gaming performance - free.

Here are some benchmarks that will give you a rough idea of your PC's gaming prowess. I've included my benchmark results on the Heaven and Tropics benchmark and the info is all there along with resolution details etc. Here is the link:

Download | Unigine (3D engine for games and real-time virtual worlds)

That said, your heaviest game will test the performance the best - the system I built above received 42FPS @ 1920x1080 on Crysis, all settings set to High and AA off and in US prices it isn't too expensive. Enjoy!

Win7 Home Premium x64

Just to post something vaguely related to the benchmarks in the OP's link... my rig (specs at lower left) pulled 44 fps in the "Tropics" demo, dx9 mode, set to 1280x1024, 4xFSAA, other options on high. In OpenGL mode it tested at 37 FPS. In DX10 mode, I get nothing but a black screen (the benchmark is running at 300+ FPS, but no graphics are rendered).

Any idea why the DX10 modes fail? Graphics card (GTS 250), or Win7 issue?

Yep, DX10 works, although OpenGl does not
