Painkiller is among those few games that feel all right under any conditions. Thanks to its well-written engine, the game is playable even on the slowest of graphics cards. That’s why we can offer you the numbers for all the resolutions and modes:
Once again the Albatron Trinity PCX 5750 finds itself on the last place; the top position is shared by the reference RADEON X600 XT and the overclocked PowerColor X600 XT. Note that all the participating cards allow for a comfortable play in any resolution, but the game is far from being primitive – its levels are beautiful and complex and there are shader-based special effects everywhere.
With full-screen anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering enabled, two cards – the original RADEON X600 XT and the overclocked PowerColor – maintain playability up to 1600x1200 resolution, notching 30fps in it. So, Painkiller is really a rare combination of beauty and simple tastes.
