F.E.A.R. Extraction Point
This game’s visual luxuries require a powerful graphics card, and the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB is 5% behind even at 1280x1024. And then the gap suddenly grows to 40% at 1600x1200.
There’s no clear benefit from overclocking the GeForce 8800 GTS here: the reference and the pre-overclocked cards suit equally well for playing at 1600x1200. And the overclocking gain is too small to make the next resolution playable with comfort. This comfort is only provided by the GeForce 8800 GTX with its 128 active shader processors and a 384-bit memory subsystem.

Using the deferred rendering technique, this game is incompatible with FSAA. We’ll publish the anisotropic filtering results only.
The MSI NX8800GTS OC Edition is getting ever farther away from the reference card as the display resolution grows, the gap amounting to 19% at 1920x1200. This 19% helps achieve an average frame rate of 55fps which is quite a comfortable level.
This test shows no difference between the two versions of GeForce 8800 GTS that have different amounts of graphics memory.
