Video Card Test Information

Video Card Benchmark results (“Baselines”) were gathered from users’ submissions to the PassMark web site as well as from internal testing. PerformanceTest conducts three different tests and then averages the results together to determine the PassMark 3D Mark for a system.

There four tests defined, two DirectX 9 tests of varying complexity, a DirectX 10 test and a DirectX 11 test. DirectX 10 and 11 tests can only be run on Windows Vista or later, additionally not all video cards support all DirectX levels and as such your PC may not have the hardware to run all the tests. Only the newest video cards can do DirectX 11.

While they may sometimes work, 3D tests are not explicitly supported under virtual machine environments or remote desktop connections. OpenGL performance is not tested.

Feature Highlights

A bare bones DirectX 9 Text

Makes use of Vertex and Pixel Shader 2.0 techniques to generate realistic water as well as texture the ground based on the height above the water.

Vertex and Pixel Shader 3.0 effects.
Uses DX10 instancing.
Uses geometry shader.

Vertex and Pixel Shader 5.0 effects.Unordered transparency technique used on jellyfish.2
Tessellation technique used to produce terrain.

Resources information

The terrain is formed by 32,258 triangular polygons.
The water surface has 512 triangular polygons.
Each plane object has 560 polygons.
Each tree has either 2214 or 1978 polygons(depending on which type).

The terrain is formed by 32,258 triangular polygons.
The water surface uses 260,610 triangular polygons.
Each plane object has 560 polygons.
Each tree has either 2214 or 1978 polygons(depending on which type).

Meteors are made up of a maximum 100,000 particles across all meteors.
Each tree has 2497 instanced leaf polygons.

Each jellyfish has 8244 polygons.
The space station has 2843 polygons.
Each of the approximately 10,000 stars is a polygon.
The terrain is made up of a variable number of polygons based on distance and wether it is in the cameras view by use of DX11 tessellation techniques.

1 This is the mode that the test attempts to run in by default, if the video card or monitor do not support this mode the test will be attempted to run at a lower resolution or anti-aliasing level, in these cases the test score will be penalized.

2 This technique relies on the video card supporting 8x anti-aliasing. If your video card does not support this another method will be used but the test score will be penalized.3

3 In the case that a test score is penalized the score in frames per second will not match the actual frames per second the test ran at.
