Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
4.0-4867 Ubuntu 14.10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Very playable with default settings. Tested all games except the two locked ones and they all worked perfectly at 100% speed. Besides for some games showing a garbled picture for a couple frames at startup and some minor graphical glitches in the menus everything is accurate. Xerxes
5.0-6106 Windows 10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Nearly perfect with default settings. The only issue I could find is that for a few frames while starting up Rolling Thunder, the screen will go rainbow pixels, but it immediately corrects itself. All other games and everything else is just fine. What I thought was wrong in the menus was some jagged edges on the text and mini arcade screens on the game select, but it seems like those also are present on console. Tested every game except Pac-Mania. Xerxes
