Advanced Videocard Benchmarks: FEAR

Sierra FEAR 1.08 - AA/AF Tests

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 video cards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

A little more strangeness in this last benchmark. The crossfire results were impressive as expected, but the single MSI R3870X2-T2D1G-OC did not perform up to its potential except at the maximum 16AA/16AF setting, where it churned out a very respectable 41FPS.
