Benchmarks: FEAR

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.

Without the Soft Shadows feature enabled, the Gigabyte GV-RX18L256V-B blends into the background quite easily and does not really standout. With SS enabled the increased bandwidth allows it to perform faster than the ATi Radeon X850 XT PE, and allows it to nip at the heals of the GeForce 7800GT too.
