Performance in Third Person 3D Shooters
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
Benchmark results in Prince of Persia 2: Warrior Within do not bring any surprises: SLI duo of two GeForce 7800 GTX is beyond competition, the GeForce 7800 GT is just slightly behind the GeForce 7800 GTX, whereas the older-generation products deliver excellent performance, but cannot compete with modern solutions.
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
As is known, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory uses Shader Model 3.0 for NVIDIA GeForce 6 and 7 graphics cards, whereas support of other graphics cards used to be limited by the Shader Model 1.1, only recently the developer of the game added support for Shader Model 2.0 for ATI RADEON hardware.
This time we tested NVIDIA GeForce-based graphics boards using Shader Model 3.0 preset, while ATI’s RADEON was benchmarked using Shader Model 2.0 rendering mode.
Due to increased fill-rate and computational power, the GeForce 7800 GT is much ahead of the GeForce 6800 Ultra in Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory .
With full-scene antialiasing and anisotropic filtering, the GeForce 7800 GT cannot leave 60 fps mark behind in 1280x1024 resolution. To tell you the truth, the 7800 GTX model also does not deliver 60 fps with such settings.
