Performance Comparisons with PT Boats: Knights of the Sea


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 reflection.  We used the DX10 Benchmark available from their website using High Quality settings at 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 without any Anti-Aliasing applied.


In the final game of our benchmark suite, we once again saw a 1-2 punch from NVIDIA's 8800 cards.  Here the variance was so slight - less than a frame in both runs - that we will have to call this a virtual tie.  The 8800 GTS 512 balances its lower memory bandwidth with higher clock speeds to keep a level playing field with the 8800 GTX.
