Performance in RPG
The current version of Gothic 3 doesn’t support FSAA, so we benchmarked the cards with anisotropic filtering only.
Version 1.09 of the game is too heavy for the graphics subsystem and none of the $199 cards can provide even a minimum of comfort here. We should wait for patches and hope they’ll improve this situation.
Neverwinter Nights 2
This game looks best when you enable HDR, so we benchmarked the card in that mode. Moreover, the Nvidia GeForce 7 series cannot use both FP HDR and full-screen antialiasing simultaneously.
Due to time limits, we had to use the same version of the game as in our GeForce 8800 GTX review. It has a number of drawbacks, doesn’t support refraction and reflection effects on ATI Radeon X1000 cards, and runs too slow. As you can see, none of the cards can give you more than 20fps.
