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.

MSI NX8800GTS-T2D320E-HD-OC (16xQ AA, 16x AF) 35.82

The MSI NX8800GTS-T2D320E-HD-OC has plenty of power to run FarCry with a high level of AA and AF. Silky smooth framerates and lots of eye candy make Colin happy. ;-)

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 NX8800GTS-T2D320E-HD-OC (16xQ AA, 16x AF) 69.9

Quake 4 numbers are similar to that of FarCry, if you want to turn up the eye candy go right ahead! Even with everything maxed out the MSI NX8800GTS-T2D320E-HD-OC still has smooth framerates.

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.

The situation in FEAR is a little different. This game is harder on graphics cards and proves to be a little too much for the MSI NX8800GTS-T2D320E-HD-OC videocard at high resolutions. Turning on Anisotropic filtering is okay, but any AA more than 2x is way too stressful.
