One of the most promising games of this year – Prey – is coming out very soon. Although this game uses the original Doom III engine, the performance in the demo version of this game is very much different from what we have seen before in the id Software product. GeForce 7900 GTX is ahead of all in the test mode with enabled FSAA and anisotropic filtering. At the same time we can’t say that ASUS EAX1900XTX yields a lot to its direct competitor by losing only 5fps. ASUS solution maintains a steady second position leaving GeForce 7900 GT the same 5 fps behind, which is actually quite unexpected for a game based on the OpenGL id Software engine.
Even with enabled FSAA the leadership in Quake 4 belongs to GeForce 7900 GTX. ASUS EAX1900XTX cannot really take advantage of its 48 pixel processors here. Although in 1600x1200 the more advanced memory bus interface of the Radeon X1900 helps reduce the gap, GeForce 7900 GTX remains ahead.
ASUS EAX1900XTX graphics card ensures acceptable level of performance in all resolutions, showing over 60fps even in 1600x1200.
