S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
The game doesn’t support FSAA when you enable the dynamic lighting model, but loses much of its visual appeal with the static model. This is the reason why we benchmarked the cards in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. using anisotropic filtering only.
The Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX wins low resolutions and is just as fast as the XFX card in high display modes. The reference GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is close behind the two leaders, all of them delivering superb performance at every resolution. The frame rate is always above 25fps even at 1920x1200, making it easy to take your aim accurately.
Unreal Tournament 3
Forcing FSAA from the graphics card’s driver doesn’t produce any effect as yet. That’s why the game is tested with anisotropic filtering only.
There is no definite leader among the top-performance graphics cards. Both G92-based products and the G80-based ex-flagship reach the speed ceiling at resolutions up to 1920x1200. The XFX card and the GeForce 8800 GTX have nearly identical results at 1920x1200. You are guaranteed to have comfortable playing conditions, the worst result being as high as 70fps.
