    Benchmarks - Video

    We ran a series of system benchmarks on the Gamer Xtreme 4200 to give us a baseline of system performance.  The effective system speed for these tests was 4.2Ghz with EIST enabled allowing the system to adjust the max frequency based on load.

    For the purposes of compairson we pulled in a previous CyberPower PC system to see just how much faster the 4200 series system is over the 2000 SE.
    3DMark - Fire Strike
    Fire Strike is a new DirectX 11 showcase benchmark designed for high-performance gaming PCs.  The benchmark features real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and really pushes the limits of what DirectX 11 can do.

    3DMark 11
    There are six tests in 3DMark 11. The four graphics tests use advanced rendering techniques to compile the scene including tessellation, volumetric lighting, depth of field and post processing effects. The physics test uses rigid body simulation to stress the CPU while the combined test features CPU and GPU workloads. The CPU handles rigid-body physics while the GPU is tasked with volumetric lighting, tessellation, post processing as well as simulating soft-body physics using DirectCompute.
