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.

FEAR is another game where performance at higher resolutions could use a lift and the pair of 8800 GTX cards in SLI do just that.  Looking at performance in the 2560×1600 resolution, there is no competition as the SLI setup sees a 92% average FPS performance increase as well as an 88% minimum FPS increase.  Again for the first time I can say that FEAR at image quality settings this high is a breeze.
