Project: Snowblind

This game is rather simple in terms of graphical complexity, so all the participating graphics cards provide a high frame rate in the “pure speed” mode. For some reason the PowerColor X1800 GTO enjoys a bigger advantage over the GeForce 7600 GT in lower resolutions, although we might have expected something completely different: the memory subsystem performance has a bigger impact on the overall performance of a graphics card in higher resolutions. However, there’s only a difference of 5% between the two in 1600x1200 but over 10% in 1024x768.

In the “eye candy” mode the PowerColor X1800 GTO is ahead of the GeForce 7600 GT too, but the gap between them grows wider as the display resolution gets higher. Besides, the average performance of these solutions is rather too low for comfortable play in 1600x1200 notwithstanding the graphical simplicity of Project: Snowblind .

The game was tested with the Fraps utility, but the measurement accuracy is quite high since we used one of the integrated videos recorded on the game engine.
