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.
Breaking no records, the new card still looks good against the GeForce 8800 GTX and even takes the lead at 1920x1200. It differs from Nvidia’s solutions in having a lower minimum of speed, but this is no problem for the gamer as it is never lower than 42fps.
In open scenes the Radeon HD 3870 X2 is quite competitive, too. Although CrossFire technology is far from its maximum efficiency here, the new card easily delivers comfortable speed being inferior only to the GeForce 8800 GTX at 1920x1200.
