Motherboard Benchmarks: FEAR, Sysmark 2007

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.

On board video still isn't enough to game on, even in games like FEAR at medium resolutions. PCSTATS was expecting better performance from the 780G chipset, the integrated Radeon 3200 should be more powerful than an integrated Intel X4500 HD graphics processor.
