IGP Motherboard IGP 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.

Playing FEAR on the Radeon HD 4290 still isn't a great idea, with the Biostar TA890GXE's IGP capable of 12 FPS. Next up, Call of Juarez and Crysis - two Direct X 10 game titles.
