The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
We didn’t test this game with turned-on FSAA because its HDR support is disabled in this case even on ATI’s Radeon X1000 cards and the visuals quality degenerates dramatically. HDR is also incompatible with the Bloom effect in this game.
Owners of a top-end graphics card can try to play The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion in 1600x1200, but they may want to limit themselves to 1280x1024 to have a higher minimum speed and a smaller performance hit in open game scenes. Graphics cards on ATI’s Radeon X1900 series GPUs have as many as 48 pixel processors and provide a higher min speed in this pixel shader-heavy game.
The overclocked PowerColor X1900 XT manages to get ahead of the Radeon X1900 XTX in low resolutions. It also does well at its default frequencies, competing with the Nvidia GeForce 7900 GTX.
None of the cards can provide an average frame rate of 55-60 here, but the Radeon X1900 models have a better min speed than the cards from Nvidia. This means more comfort during play. The cards on Radeon X1900 and GeForce 7900 series GPUs are roughly similar in terms of average speed.
