Dawn of War III

Dawn of War III Mad Max on Steam. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account, have Steam installed for the system, and that you own a copy of this game. This automates the process of executing the game and using its built-in benchmark mode.

This test will attempt to install the necessary game using your Steam account. If the test appears hung you may need to manually exit the Steam client.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark dow3.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Dawn of War III

Resolution: 2560 x 1440 - Graphics Preset: Ultra - Renderer: Vulkan

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 278 public results since 28 June 2017 with the latest data as of 4 August 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
