Performance in RPG

Gothic 3

The current version of Gothic does not support FSAA, so there are only anisotropic filtering results here.

Even without FSAA the game generates a huge amount of graphical data, but as it was the case with Hitman: Blood Money , the lack of memory only shows up in 1920x1200 resolution where the average speed of the ordinary GeForce 7950 GT is less than 20fps. However, this graphics card enjoys a 40% advantage over its 256MB counterpart. Even the increased frequencies of the Foxconn can’t help here. They only affect the card’s performance in 1280x1024resolution and provide a negligible gain of less than 1fps.

Neverwinter Nights 2

The game looks best with enabled HDR, so we benchmarked the cards in this mode. Moreover, the Nvidia GeForce 7 series cannot use FP HDR together with FSAA. We used version 1.3 of the game – its performance is improved over the earlier versions.

Even with patch 1.3, the average performance of the tested graphics cards is low and does not depend on the card’s having 256MB or 512MB of memory. The difference between the cards from Gigabyte and Foxconn is within the measurement error range and does not depend on whether the latter card works at its factory frequencies or at the frequencies of the reference GeForce 7950 GT.
