F.E.A.R.

The PowerColor card turns in the best result here, but doesn’t reach 60fps which is the comfortable speed for first-person shooters. Well, you can try to play the game as the speed is never lower than 25fps, yet we’d recommend you to disable FSAA on your $199-class graphics card to have some reserve of performance for the hardest game scenes.

F.E.A.R. Extraction Point

As you could have learned from our review, F.E.A.R. Extraction Point differs from the original only in making wider use of complex visual effects. That’s why it’s not surprising to see the same picture of performance here as in F.E.A.R. Moreover, the average performance of every graphics card is somewhat higher than in the original game.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter

The deferred rendering technique employed by this game makes it incompatible with full-screen antialiasing, so the cards were benchmarked with anisotropic filtering only.

The increased GPU clock rate allows the PowerColor X1950 Pro to successfully contend with the GeForce 7900 GS here, but the game engine is so resource-consuming that the frame rate of 60fps is unachievable. On the other hand, there are no slowdowns to below 25fps which is the minimum you need for smooth gameplay.
