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.
It is the amount and frequency of shader processors that determine the performance in closed scenes of this game. The WinFast PX8800 GTS is unrivalled as the consequence. It is 1fps behind the GeForce 8800 GTX at 1920x1200 yet provides a higher minimum of speed.
It is different in open scenes: the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is ahead at 1280x1024 only. The GeForce 8800 GTX then catches up with the leader at 1600x1200 and overtakes it at 1920x1200. Note that the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB has the same result as the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB. It means that the speed is indeed limited by the memory bandwidth.
From a practical standpoint, there is no difference between the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB and GeForce 8800 GTX when it comes to playing this game but the newer card is superior is terms of power consumption and size.
