Prey – Radeon HD 2600 XT

Prey (OpenGL)


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.

At 1600×1200, the scores ended up a lot closer than I thought they would.  The 2600 XT is able to produce a decent gaming experience at 1280×960 and can almost compete with the 8600 GT.

For whatever reason, our 8600 GT SLI scores decided they didn’t want to scale at all — obviously some kind of driver issue or bug.  It is more than likely though that the great scaling of the CrossFire 2600 XT cards (66%) would have surpassed the dual 8600 GT card setup as it is almost on par with the GTS model.
