FEAR (Direct X)
One of the most impressive games of E3 2005 is turning out to be one of the most graphically intense as well. Even with the 7800 GTX and X1800 XT I didn’t find the game playable at 1600×1200 with all the details turned on:
*** Note: we have disabled Soft Shadows in all the below tests despite what the screen indicates above. And since we were using the retail game this time, I opted to use the in-game “settings test” fly by to compare performance.
At the 4xAA level there is a decent 4.2% gain from the reference card to the BFG 7900 GTX OC card. SLI sees a great performance gain of nearly 70% over the single cards .
