StarCraft 2 - NBC Benchmark Information

Benchmark

We use the full version of StarCraft 2 for Windows for our benchmarks and decided to benchmark the intro sequence of the Challenge "For the Swarm". We are using Fraps to record the average framerate from the Intro sequence (beginning at the time the image apears until the mouse cursor appears). As the performance is lower in the first run (due to HDD loading e.g.), we benchmark three runs and take the best average score.

This intro should represent the average Single Player and Multiplayer performance. CPU speed is not very important in this benchmark (it has a higher impact while actually gaming).

Settings

Texture Quality and Graphics Quality are changed using the presets in the game (we only change the preset and not the detailed settings). Vertical Sync and "Reduce Mouse Lag" are disabled. Display Mode is "Fullscreen". The graphics driver settings are all set on default and no AA is forced.

5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
123Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.
