    Good to see a benchmark program for people to run on their own PC's.

    The real question is: will it support Enduro?

    A little faster the second time on Direct X, but my CPU and GPU both spiked to 100% a few times.

    I don't think you can call that a "benchmark". The scores are just to different. Also, the fights are dynamic. So you get different results every time.

    It really is just a performance demo.

    Notice the amount of batches the benchmark is pushing. Games rarely go above 1000 because of the CPU cost of each batch. I think with BF 3 DICE tried to stay below 700 batches so that rendering wouldn't be bottlenecked by the CPU overhead caused by the driver.

    So far it looks like DirectX is limited to avg. ~ 3800 units.



    Anyone with mantle driver yet?
    "Up to 10,000+ units onscreen at once – Imagine what kind of games can be made when developers can count on simulating battles and scenes at this scale "

    What fps and unit count :nerd:

    Mantle drivers aren't out yet, supposedly getting their finishing touches.

    10fps drop happens when it turns on motion object blur, which apparently is a big dx hog, plus object count..

    got it. lol... how could i miss that..
    You can also run teh Bench with STEAM OFF.. so no resource waste in background..

    i did a run, but for me this just looks unoptimized..

    i mean, 50% max core load on my cpu cores and 30% GPU usage?

    no wonder it runs so bad..I bet in mantle it will run way better..But i call that marketing bull****.. if it would be optimized, i bet it would use more CPU and gpu..

    [​IMG]

    But i also could be wrong..
    Still a bad benchmark..Doesnt even use half of my systems Power..
