After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Just a quick word here before we dive into the info. The Ninjalane lab machine I used is a fairly good DX11 rig with a Intel i7 950 @4.4ghz 6GBs of ram @ 8-8-8-21 1900mhz and dual Radeon 5850s in crossfire, and this Benchmark brings back the slideshows of past Futuremark releases. alot of the extreme tests were running in the low single digit framerates in some parts.
This preset is designed for benchmarking with a low level of load on the graphics card. The benchmark runs in 1024 x 600 resolution making it suitable for most entry level DirectX 11 capable systems including notebooks and netbooks.
This preset is designed for benchmarking with a moderate load on the graphics card. The benchmark runs in 1280 x 720 (720p) making it suitable for most DirectX 11 capable gaming PCs, though at launch high end hardware may be required to achieve a fluid frame rate.
This preset is designed for benchmarking with a very heavy load on the graphics card. The benchmark runs in 1920 x 1080 (1080p). The Extreme preset extendsthe lifetime of the benchmark by representing the likely loads used by high end games in years to come. At launch it offers enthusiasts a suitable benchmark load for competing at the extreme end of system performance.
