The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

The game loses much of its visual appeal without HDR. Although some gamers argue that point, we think TES IV looks best with enabled FP HDR and test it in this mode.

The four RV670-based cards seem to hit against some ceiling that prevents them from having an average frame rate higher than 60fps. That’s not a consequence of the disabled vsync option. We don’t know the reason of that. Perhaps, there are some flaws in the current version of the Catalyst driver or in the software setup of our testbed.

It wouldn’t be correct to compare the ATI Radeon HD 3800 cards with Nvidia’s solutions due to the mentioned problem, but their performance is high for normal play even in open scenes. The speed is never lower than 25-26fps at 1920x1200 even if you play the game on a Radeon HD 3850 whereas the average frame rate is 44fps. These numbers have been a dream of every TES IV fan just recently.
