Advanced Videocard Benchmarks: FarCry, Doom 3, FEAR

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.

ID Software Quake 4 1.3

Source: id Software

Quake 4 is the latest shooter from ID and is based on the Doom 3 engine. Tweaked to for more eye candy, Quake 4 promises to be tougher on videocards and systems than its predecessor was. Quake 4 also does not have a 60 fps limiter like Doom 3, with the Ultra setting, graphic textures can surpass the 500MB mark! Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

Performance of the MSI NX8800GTX-T2D768E-HD videocard in Quake 4 with AA and AF turned up is excellent, you'll definitely be very pleased by what you see here. Even with 16xQ AA enabled, framerates are very smooth. The NX8800GTX-T2D768E-HD is the only videocard on the market that can accomplish this feat right now.

Sierra FEAR 1.08

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.

MSI NX8800GTX-T2D768E-HD (16xQ AA, 16x AF) 33

FEAR AA/AF tests make up the last benchmark of the day. The mighty MSI NX8800GTX-T2D768E-HD struggles at the highest resolution with all the eye candy turned up to max (just 33FPS!). Realistically, 8x AA is probably the maximum you'd want to use here, anything with 16x or 16xQ is simply too much for the videocard to handle...
