FEAR

FEAR (Direct X)


One of the most impressive games of E3 2005 turned out to be one of the most graphically intense as well.

*** 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.

Even up to 2048×1536, the 8800 GTX is more than 50% faster than the best ATI has to show, though the gap does close slightly at 2560×1600, but is still nearly 20%.  In comparison to the 7900 GTX again we see more than 100% improvement in game speeds — 2560×1600 with 4x/8x settings is basically completely playable now with a single card!
