A Real Game To Test Your System

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So you think you have a big bad machine huh. Guess again. Playing games built for 2005 console hardware that also happen to be on PC is no real test. its 2012 and you need a game that will stress your cpu and gpu.

The game is natural selection 2. I can't max the game and play it smoothly. I get ~30 fps at 1440 everything on. I have yet to play another game that pushes my system like this. Bf3 is a cakewalk compared to this. Give it a shot. Again this game is one of the few out today that will benefit from cpu overclocking AND gpu overclocking.

Good luck.

Could just be a poorly coded game like Crysis. Not sure though as I've never heard of it before.

Except it doesn't look good. Just because I game is poorly optimized doesn't mean its a good test of your system. BF3 is highly optimized for multi core CPUs and scales extremely well with GPU power which is why it runs so well for people.

Doesn't look good? Are we talking about the same game ?
