Advanced Benchmarks: FarCry, Doom 3

FarCry Source: Ubisoft

Real-time editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features that the CryENGINE offers. The game was set to Ultra quality and the Ubisoft's Regulator and Training demos were run.

FarCry results are decent although gaming at 1600x1200 with AA and AF is too much for the Asus EAX1600 XT Silent/TVD/256M/A videocard.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limits. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

Doom 3 results are decent... although it's the same situation in Doom 3 as we say with FarCry. Turning on AA/AF is too much for the Asus EAX1600 XT Silent/TVD/256M/A at 1600x1200 resolutions.

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.

Realistically, these framerates are too low to provide gamers with a decent gaming experience.
