Performance in First Person 3D Shooters
Our Leadtek GeForce 6800 Ultra benchmark would not be full without the Doom III game, however, this title caused some difficulties for us and NVIDIA Corp.
When we were in process of making our Doom III Performance Preview we used Leadtek’s graphics card for getting the results. Unfortunately, the product froze and produced BSODs all the time, which is why we put it away and used the reference card from NVIDIA.
After making some brief investigation and even down-clocking Leatek’s GeForce 6800 Ultra graphics card to “GT” frequencies we still could not make it run well in Doom III. Being pretty upset we asked NVIDIA to provide us a new BIOS version for the card and modestly hoping for success we flashed it inside. We were totally amazed, but the graphics card managed to run Doom III game absolutely flawlessly after trivial BIOS flash.
NVIDIA’s GeForce 6800-series is the fastest Doom III performer. No need to say that Leadtek’s 6800 Ultra with boosted clock-speed is the fastest graphics card in Doom III we at X-bit labs have ever tested.
