PT Boats:
Knights of the Sea

PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is a naval war-sim based on a substantially modified version of the Storm engine.  It takes a full grip of all DirectX 10 graphics and film-quality features to create a more realistic gaming experience. These improvements include: advanced ocean rendering, soft particles, reflections, light beams and advanced transparency, and advanced HDR for gunfire and sun reflections.  We used the DX10 Benchmark available from their website using High Quality settings at 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 without any Anti-Aliasing applied.


The "Storm" engine is especially brutal on the weaker cards, with the 8600 GTS showing the most anemic results of any in this group.  The Radeon HD 3650s do fare a little better, almost doubling the 8600 GTS' output, but with a large disparity between the two competitors.  The Sapphire HD 3650 is giving us from 33-40% better frame rates than Diamond's sample.
