Rainbow Six Vegas
Rainbow Six Vegas (DirectX 9)
The Rainbow Six series has always been a high quality set of games that center on action-based tactical assualt. The new Vegas iteration takes a bit more of the action approach similar to what we have seen in Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. This game is the first to use the new Unreal 3 engine and you can tell! The graphics are amazing and really stress our systems.
The EVGA GeForce 8600 GT is again the big winner in this competition and leaves both the ATI X1650 XT and the 7600 GT from NVIDIA well behind. AT 1024×768, the 8600 GT has a 9% average higher frame rate over the ATI card and is 25% faster at 1280×960. Compared to the 7600 GT card, the 8600 GT looks even better sporting gains of 48% and more!
