Benchmark Results: Bulletstorm
We’ll shift gears now into the new blood-splattered funfest known as Bulletstorm.
The graphics look quite good at the lowest settings, and the game is close to playable at 1024x600. But there are occasional slowdowns that detract from the experience. This might be a result of streaming data, and perhaps the game would perform better with more RAM. It feels better than the numbers suggest though, and observing the frame rates during game play indicates that the usual minimum frame rate is close to the average. In any case, this game isn’t smooth enough to enjoy on either system.
Bulletstorm is not playable on these platforms.

so the gpu's in modern consoles are around the same as the e-350? since these gpus are mainly cpu bound? Also should have put counterstrike fun and not demanding.Reply
Can they make a video game that features a Monopolistic Chip Company who threatens and bribes computer manufacturers to be zombies?Reply
OOPS It's not "Aamusing"Reply
It's Pointless To Compare Them...
Why are you guys not testing some good quality freeware first person shooters, that could run smoothly on those low end PCs? For example:Reply
Urban Terror (my favorite one), Open Arena, Alien Arena? Or at least Quake live?
Cause it's ridiculous to test all those latest shooters on such low end machines...
I was just thinking about reinstalling either of the Star Trek: Armada titles now I've moved to Windows 7, just to see if it removes the stuttering I experienced in XP. Good to see one of those titles here.Reply
Good review; was kinda wishing for the HL2:LC or some previous-gen UT titles though. :)
You could've tried overclocking them :DReply
But seriously, the ION seems to be bottlenecked by the cpu.
Low end graphics! How about testing them with popular MMOG for addicts that travel, but like the portability of netbooks!Reply
Diablo 2? and Warcraft 3?Reply
Thank you for including older titles in your comparison ! I hope you'll be able to include even more of them in any future tests to give each major game engine of the era a fair chance :)Reply
