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.

PCSTATS Benchmark ReportCrytek FarCry 1.33:
UQ Regulator 1600x1200: FPS Ranking
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (2x AA) 80.32
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (2xQ AA) 79.54
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (4x AA) 53.62
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (8xS AA) 24.32
UQ Training 1600x1200: FPS Ranking
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (2x AF) 95.42
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (4x AF) 95.36
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (8x AF) 95.14
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (16x AF) 94.86
UQ Training 1600x1200: FPS Ranking
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (4x AA, 4x AF) 51.51
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (8xS AA, 8x AF) 21.86

With light AA/AF enabled FarCry offers decent framerates. You'll probably want to run this game at slightly lower resolutions though, otherwise framerates get a bit tight.

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.

MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (8xS AA, 8x AF) 42.1

Quake 4 results are interesting... if you're a gamer you should be pleased with this.

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 NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (4x AA, 4x AF) 22
MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC (8xS AA, 8x AF) 10

FEAR with AA/AF enabled is a bit too much for the MSI NX7900GS-T2D512E-OC videocard. Stick with gaming at 1600x1200, the jagged lines aren't too bad at that setting.
