Oblivion (DirectX 9)
Probably one of the most demanding and graphically customizable games you will ever see, Oblivion can stress any system that exists for gaming today. With its wide open areas and high quality textures the graphics system for Oblivion produces spectacular results.
Now we’re talking! These SLI performance numbers are more what we were looking for from the 8600 GTS and GT cards and reaches up to the levels we have seen in the top Windows XP numbers previously. At 1280×960 the 8600 GTS is able to get 84% scaling in performance while the 8600 GT sees a 75% gain in average frame rate. Not only that, but the minimum frame rates improved just as dramatically. At 1600×1200 those numbers go down slightly to 57% and 43%, but are still very good.
