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.

Anti-Aliasing requires a lot of bandwidth and the MSI NX7600GT-VT2D256E videocard does fairly well in these tests, but in the end the 128-bit memory bus is simply too restrictive. Light Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering is possible, but enabling anything above 4x is too much for the Geforce 7600GT core.

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 frame rates tell the same tale that FarCry did - high AA settings are too hard on the MSI NX7600GT-VT2D256E videocard. Let's see how the equation changes with Fear and AA/AF next.
