Our readers may remember Metal Knight Zero Online (MKZ (http://www.mkzonline.com/) ‚?? chinese online-FPS title by Object Software (http://object.com.cn/)) benchmark, released in mid 2008 as part of GeForce PowerPack #1.

Now, new and enhanced MKZ Benchmark version 2.2, specially developed for Fermi GPUs launch in China, is available.

Compared to previous version, graphics is looking much nicer, game physics (destructible rigid body objects, particles, tearable cloth) is looking more solid and accurate.

MKZ Benchmark 2.2 download is available here (http://download.nvidia.com/downloads/nZone/demos/MKZBenchMark_V2.2.exe) (1.3 Gb)

Important note:

For English version you‚??ll need to select first line designated as ?? during installation.


Configuring and launching the game may be a little tricky.

Benchmark settings can be altered via MKZSettings.exe file, located in \Object Software\MKZBenchmark\system folder.


Now, to launch benchmark with saved settings, you‚??ll need to create shortcut for MetalKnightZeroClient.exe file (same folder) with following parameters ‚??-openautomate -debug‚??


You can use one of the shortcuts created automatically during installation, but don‚??t forget to delete ‚??-RESOLUTION‚?? parameter, to prevent graphics resolution settings override.

P.S. MKZ is now in closed beta state. Open beta will be available later this summer.

P.P.S. Don‚??t forget to check other recent PhysX benchmark ‚?? JX3 (http://physxinfo.com/news/2803/jx3-physx-and-cuda-benchmark/)

Again, thanks for Stefan for some hints
