Splinter Cell Chaos Theory Benchies

A batch file to bench SPlinter Cell Chaos Theory

Benchmarking Scripts for Splinter Cell : Chaos Theory
===============================================

Ubisoft was kind enough to provide me with a sample of this but I have modified them
to cover all resolutions you normally see in reviews by hardware media outlets for
both shader models supported by the game (ShaderModel 1_1 and ShaderModel 3_0).

This with Full Retail version patched up. I dunno if it works with the dmeo version

Why no benchies yet ?? i'd like to see some SLI benchies with & without HDR.
i would bench if i have the game but i dont.

I thought my rig was fairly bad ass (my rig is in my sig), but this games slows it to a crawl! None of these results come up with a game that plays well on my PC. All settings were with AA off and AF off. HDR looks SO much nicer, that I am playing at 1024x768 with HDR ON (SM3), but at times the framerate is terrible.

AVERAGE FPS MIN FPS MAX FPS Comment
39.5 23.46 119.30 1024x768 SM1.1
31.1 16.76 80.36 1024x768 SM3 HDR ON
36.64 19.49 109.97 1024x768 SM3 HDR OFF

27.9 15.94 82.65 1280x1024 SM1.1
21.21 10.78 55.38 1280x1024 SM3 HDR ON
25.88 13.84 77.35 1280x1024 SM3 HDR OFF

I'm using the 71.89 drivers.

Muya - your rig is similar to mine, but you have better results. What driver version are you using?

Re: Splinter Cell Chaos Theory Benchies
 
That is strange. Plus I have all optimizations off! Weird that! I am using 81.84 drivers dude. I will bench with HDR soon

Re: Splinter Cell Chaos Theory Benchies
 
Hmm, well I loaded on the 76.44 drivers last night and performance is pretty much the same for me.

I'd be interested to see the modifications you did to the INI files supplied above. I am using them as is, except I changed the 1280x960 res to 1280x1024. Did you change that too, or are you actually running 1280x960 as Reverend has it set?

My benchmarks are with NO AF and AA too and STILL they are lower than yours. Are you doing any driver tweaks? I am using default driver settings (quality, not high quality, etc). I don't know if setting the profile to "Splinter Cell" would help me at all?

I use no optimzations period!

I stand by what I wrote in that review. my 6800 Ultra does play some games with 4X AA and 8X AF w/o optimizations! Some games...well, like the higher res benches indicate are a bit too much.

hmm USE32bittextures=false is that default?

So you think the Leadtek is that much better than the BfG?

In this INI file, you have HDR=1, but you said in your original benchmark you had HDR off. Can you try a benchmark with this INI file you posted? Still though, my HDR off benchies are still lower than yours... BTW, what is your OS? I'm on Windows XP with SP2.

What I want is to get smooth 1280x1024 working with HDR on (min framerate no less than 30) but I'm not sure that's possible without moving to SLI?

Anyone have SLI and care to run some benchies?
