Asus V8440 TD and V8460 ultra TD in the test: Two 'Ti' tans among themselves

Max Payne

Max Payne uses the Max-FX engine, as it was already used in 3DMark2001. There are high demands on the hardware, since very complex and expensive 3D effects are used. Despite some DirectX 8.0 functions used, static T&L according to DirectX is still used7.0 used. The PCGH benchmark mod was used with the VGA demo as a time demo; the program was only available in 32-bit color depth, with 32-bit textures. The achieved frame rates may seem a bit low to one or the other - the bench is really that tough!

Max Payne is again an example of a limitation outside the graphics system, even if the fronts are clearly defined from the start, the more expensive new releases can only differ relatively late and relatively unspectacularly from the old Take off en guard, even the GeForce4 MX440 keeps up the pace to some extent.
