For the Game

When using the game Lost Planet and Unigine Heaven. We also weighed NVIDIA GTX460M with tessellation feature. Feature Tesselation is a lethal weapon for the graphics card because these features will create a 3D image is more prominent. These features will drain the power of GPU and CPU.

When playing the game Lost planet, you can still adjust the settings of this game at native resolution with low DX11 future. In the benchmark systetis Unigine Heaven, you can see the results obtained by setting high reached only 17.8 FPS on normal benchmark setting.

In the game Left4Dead, a combination of CPU and GPU make this game runs very smoothly at high settings and native resolution. It made us begin by setting 8x MSAA.
