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.

At the top resolution, the XFX model is able to perform about 9% better than the stock card; a nearly 1:1 ratio of clock speed and performance gains.  Obviously some games scale better than others and even the 8800 GTX isn’t powerful enough for some titles at resolutions and IQ settings like this.
