Advanced Videocard Benchmarks: FEAR, Crysis

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

Turning up the AA/AF stresses the MSI R4830 a little, but it still manages a respectable 54 FPS once all the settings are cranked to their maximum.

Crysis 1.2 - AA/AF Tests

Source: Electronic Arts

Crysis is a science fiction first-person shooter developed by Crytek. Crysis uses Microsoft's new API, DirectX 10 for graphics rendering, and includes the new engine—the CryEngine 2—that is the successor to Far Cry's CryEngine. CryEngine 2 is among the first engines to use the DirectX 10 framework of Windows Vista, but can also run using DirectX 9, both on Vista and Windows XP.

Like pretty much every AMD videocard that's been tested with Crysis, there's a dip in performance at 1900x1200 with 4xAA turned on. It's largely irrelevant since the R4830 isn't suitable for running Crysis at the resolution at 4xAA or 8xAA.... but we like to "stress" them anyway.

Okay, we've gone over the technology and shown you the benchmarks, where does the MSI R4830 videocard stand in our books? The final word is coming up next...
