Videocard Benchmarks: FEAR

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.

FEAR is hard on all but the high end videocards... The MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC performs well at lower resolutions but going to 1600x1200 really kills framerates as you can see.
