Stunning landscapes in millions of colors, richly animated characters and structures and hundreds of intelligent units are what you'll find in today's leading edge real-time strategy (RTS) games. As these games become more epic and three-dimensional, the number of units controlled simultaneously by the players and their opponents grows considerably, making the strategies more complex and game play itself more engaging.
The Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, with speeds up to 2.53 GHz, is designed to handle the demands of the most complex and heavily populated environments in the best 3D RTS games, because you can't afford to get caught in the middle of an epic battle with slow performance. Set in a realistic, interactive 3D medieval landscape, Warrior Kings* lets you create, conquer and thrive as you choose the path your hero and his people will take.
For the maximum experience, new RTS games need to quickly render vast dynamic high-resolution environments. At the same time, the computer has to provide intelligence and animation for hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of intelligent units and their associated interactivity that include lighting and sound effects, and dynamic textures across vast landscapes. The Intel Pentium 4 processor, provides both the raw processing power and the advanced graphical capabilities for this type of next-generation game.
Pentium 4 processor-based PCs, now available with DDR-SDRAM memory, can efficiently handle the vast amount of data streaming in and out of the processor, thereby reducing lag time. In addition, the Pentium 4 processor can scale to accommodate ever-changing intelligent environments and simultaneous players while maintaining image quality.
