It provides completely unbiased results and generates true in-game rendering workloads across all platforms, such as Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

Unigine Valley 1.0

Valley Benchmark is a new GPU stress-testing tool from the developers of the very popular and highly acclaimed Heaven Benchmark. The forest-covered valley surrounded by vast mountains amazes with its scale from a bird’s-eye view and is extremely detailed down to every leaf and flower petal.

Aliens Vs Predator

Rebellion has released a stand-alone benchmark of its latest Aliens vs. Predator title. Like the original game, the benchmark supports DirectX 11, Tessellation, Ambient Occlusion, Advanced Shadow Sampling and Anti-Aliasing. Here are some more details about the original game: “Bringing the legendary war between two of science-fiction’s most popular characters to FPS fans, AvP delivers three outstanding single player campaigns and provides untold hours of unique 3-way multiplayer gaming.

Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3 is a first-person shooter video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. It is a direct sequel to 2005’s Battlefield 2, and the eleventh installment in the Battlefield franchise.

As for this game benchmark, I played the first segment of Operation Swordbreaker using Ultra High settings and used MSI afterburner to log the FPS statistics during the course of game.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a 2013 action-adventure game, and the sixth main installment in the Assassin’s Creed series. A sequel to 2012’s Assassin’s Creed III, the game has the player take on the role of an Abstergo Entertainment research analyst as they explore the story of Edward Kenway – father to Haytham Kenway, grandfather to Ratonhnhaké:ton and an ancestor of Desmond Miles.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is set primarily on and around the islands in the Caribbean Sea during the Golden Age of Piracy in the early 18th century, with the three major cities consisting of Havana, Nassau and Kingston.

Same with BF3, I played a particular segment on all three settings. The two other settings aren’t even recommended by GeForce but we used it for fun which did pull down the frame rates significantly.

Let’s wrap up this review on the next page.
