Question How to benchmark painkiller demo3 and PoP2 demo?

I'm responsible for a video card review, which includes 6800U/6600GT/6600, X800/700/600. And I think these 2 newly released demos might bring sth interesting, but I just don't know how to benchmark them precisely(without using fraps). Is there any builtin benchmark command?

Those are also visible on SM.2b hardware. and I found the demoperf much faster on my X800XT compared with my 6800U

I don't know, but I heard somewhere the demo didn't use any SM3.0 yet, just SM2(b) but I don't know that for sure. Bloomeffects and warp (=heatshaze) are possible with SM.2.0(b) AFAIK.

I can see those effects also on my 5700U, so I think they only used SM 2.0, possibly SM 2.a

Glad you brought this subject .

upon checking the perfomance on Painkiller Demo 3 .. i found out that my X800Pro@XT-PE plays the game faster than my 6800GT@Ultra . (see sig for system) .
for ex. at level start i get 50fps on the 6800 & 66fps on the X800 @1600x1200,2xAA,8xAF . (i know its dosent represent the actual gameplay all time but gives a good indication on the performance) .
in the heaviest fights (last fight is a good exmaple where theres much shader effects & HDR & haze & heat distortion .. see s-shot) i get into teens on the 6800 while the game is on 20s on the X800 which make it acceptable to play on it .

simply put .. i can play at the above settings on the X800 while to play acceptable framerate on the 6800 i need to run @1280x1024,4xAA,8xAF which is still abit slower than the X800 numbers .

i hope nVIDIA improves the performance with next drivers !
