Nvidia GeForce 6 graphics cards were the first ones to support expanded DirectX 9 version and Shader Model 3.0., which gave the company a serious marketing advantage for the next one and a half years, however, never resulted in any practical benefits for them. Today we are going to talk about ATI Radeon HD 3800, the first graphics accelerators supporting DirectX 10.1.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
The game loses much of its visual appeal without HDR. Although some gamers argue that point, we think TES IV looks best with enabled FP HDR and test it in this mode.
The new Radeon HD 3800 series performs perfectly fine in outdoor and indoor scenarios of this game. The top model provides comfortable gaming performance in all resolutions, although it yields to Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB, while the younger model loses to Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB only in outdoor scenarios.
