Subject: Dungeon Siege The Benchmark?
Looking for a different way to stress test the 'ol computer? Well, the folks at Gas Powered Games have been working with the editors at ExtremeTech to develop a Dungeon Siege Benchmark (*NOTE* The benchmark requires you have Dungeon Siege already installed, it is not a stand alone product) program to test your computer and video card. Here's the word:
Microsoft today announced that ExtremeTech, the technology enthusiast's web site launched last year by Ziff Davis Media, will use the critically acclaimed action fantasy game Dungeon Siege as a key part of their benchmark suite to test the performance of the computer systems, processors, and graphics cards they review.Push them frames like 'ya just don't care.
Dungeon Siege's unique architecture allows testing of a broad range of resources on nearly any PC system available today. The benchmark is a non-interactive demo in which the character runs through various aspects of the world. Dungeon Siege's "continuous world" technology incorporates resources from CPU, memory, and graphics during gameplay, making it a superb all-around system test for benchmarking standards.
