Prey is the latest title to be released using the Doom 3 engine, and since we have learned how to tweak the engine a bit more since then, it makes sense to include this major title in our testing suite.
Moving onto Prey we see some impressive numbers from these mainstream cards being able to run at 1600×1200 resolution with 4xAA and 8xAF enabled without too much of a problem. Adding in a second card improves there performance significantly here as well. At the 1280×1024 resolution test we saw a 32% and 45% increase in performance and was probably limited by the 60 FPS limit the Doom 3 engine has during real gameplay. At 1600×1200 we see 55% gains from both the 8600 GTS and 8600 GT cards with NVIDIA’s SLI technology; not bad!
