Advanced Videocard 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 and AF require a lot of bandwidth, yet with a 128 bit memory controller the Gigabyte GV-NX76T256D-RH doesn't really have enough to go around. Performance is decent I suppose with light AA/AF settings, but anything higher than that makes the game totally unplayable.

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.

We see similar results in Doom 3 as we did in FarCry. The Gigabyte GV-NX76T256D-RH videocard has no problems playing at a lower resolution, but when things are turned up it's a bit too much for the mainstream GeForce 7600GT to handle.

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.

FEAR is probably one of the most stressful video games on the market... and it definitely show here. AA is out of the question for the Gigabyte GV-NX76T256D-RH. If you want to play at high resolutions, it does run pretty well with just AF enabled.
