Performance in Third Person 3D Shooters
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
This OpenGL shooter placed in the Star Wars universe doesn’t use complex shader-based effects, and NVIDIA’s cards are preferable here. Overclocking brings in a surprisingly low gain, but the difference between the GeForce 6800 Ultra and the Leadtek is tangible, although produced by a small difference in the frequencies of the two GPUs (25MHz).
Everything returns to the norm after we enable full-screen antialiasing and anisotropic filtering. The difference between the two versions of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is small, and overclocking becomes more rewarding since not only the GPU, but the graphics memory too is overclocked. However, even the overclocked WinFast A400 Ultra is overtaken by the RADEON X800 in 1280x1024 and left behind in 1600x1200.
