Performance in Gaming Applications: Third Person 3D Shooters
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
This OpenGL game doesn’t have sparkling special effects and thus favors NVIDIA graphics cards, although not too much. The ASUS AX800 Pro is just a little behind the GeForce 6800 GT – this gap is easily closed by overclocking.
It’s like a game of leapfrog in the “eye candy” mode. The AX800 PRO loses the 1024x768 resolution to the GeForce 6800 GT. In 1280x1024 they go even (the ASUS is better if overclocked), but in 1600x1200 the AX800 PRO again slows down due to its 12 pipelines. Well, the last resolution is theoretical rather than practical: no card except the RADEON X800 XT hits the point of 35fps.
