Advanced Benchmarks: FEAR and Conclusions

FEAR

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

Didn't we say that FEAR is heavy on the system? With a resolution of 1600x1200, and with maximum details (Soft Shadows disabled), it's too much for two Asus EN7800GT 2DHTV/256M/OSP/A when AA and AF are turned to the max. Still with light AA+AF, the SLI Asus EN7800GT can play the game just fine.

Asus EN7800GT's worth every penny next to 7800GTX's

There is more to the Asus EN7800GT 2DHTV/256M/OSP/A than just a fast videocard, it is also one of the best looking cards on the market. The swanky blue PCB is a nice change from the traditional green that all 7800GTX's come in.

Asus' cooling solution is also quieter and more efficient than the stock coolers, let's not forget to mention the blue LEDs that dot the videocard which spice things up.

Asus includes everything but the kitchen sink with each EN7800GT 2DHTV/256M/OSP/A which is nice. PCSTATS tested the Asus EN7800GT videocards in a dual SLI configuration, but just so it is clear the cards are each sold separately.

Bundled Extras or Missing Extras?

Buying computer components can be very exciting for the enthusiast and it is easy to miss something by accident, with Asus videocards there is no need to worry. Asus includes DVI to analog converters with its videocards as well as dual molex to six pin 12V power cables so you're all covered when it comes to hardware. The software suite that comes with the Asus EN7800GT videocard is well trimmed, and can keep a gamer busy for a couple weekends.

Performance is where the Asus EN7800GT 2DHTV/256M/OSP/A really excels. In nearly all the benchmarks the videocard/s keeps up with the higher end GeForce 7800GTX in both single and SLI configurations! Pretty amazing considering the GeForce 7800GT GPU has four less pixel rendering pipelines and one less vertex pipeline, as well as slower clock speed for the core and memory.

The Asus EN7800GT-2D4TV/256M/OSP/A overclocked quite nicely too. A single Asus EN7800GT videocard reached 463 MHz core, 1248 MHz memory. With two working in tandem they could overclock to 448 MHz core and 1246 MHz memory without any issues! Very impressive considering how much heat these videocards can put out.

With a retail price of $470 CDN ($400 US) per card, the Asus EN7800GT-2D4TV/256M/OSP/A is an absolute steal and if you are looking for a high performance videocard. In a single or dual configuration (depending on budgets of course), the Asus EN7800GT-2D4TV/256M/OSP/A has enough power to handle any game that you throw at it today; settings like AA and AF included!
