Advanced Benchmarks: FarCry, Doom 3, FEAR

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.

AA requires a lot of bandwidth to run properly. The Asus EN7600GT Silent is handicapped by its 128bit memory controller, so frame rates dip as AA increases.

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.

As we saw in FarCry, 8x AA is way too much for the Asus EN7600GT Silent videocard to handle. At most you run 4x AA at lower 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.

Considering the resolution, framerates are pretty good, but not playable with these kinds of framerates. For a mainstream videocard the Asus EN7600GT Silent has some limitations when it comes to turning on all the eye candy.
