Dungeon Siege Serves As Benchmark for PC Performance

Microsoft has recently announced that ExtremeTech, the technology enthusiast website launched by Ziff Davis Media, will use the critically acclaimed Dungeon Seige as a key part of their benchmark suite to test the multitude of computer systems, graphics cards, and processors that they review.

The benchmark is a non-interactive demo in which a character runs through various aspects of the world of Dungeon Siege. Dungeon Siege's "continuous world" technology incorporates resources from the CPU, graphics, and memory during gameplay, and makes it a very good all-around system test for benchmarking standards.

Gamers who are interested in benchmarking their own systems may download the utility at the link supplied below.
