F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate
Like Battlefield 2142, this game doesn’t support resolutions of 16:10 format and we use 1920x1440 (4:3 format) instead of 1920x1200.
The XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition goes neck and neck with the GeForce 8800 GTX. It’s only at 1920x1200 that the XFX card is somewhat ahead, outperforming the opponent by 9-10%. The latter has a better minimum of speed, however. Overclocking gives no particular advantage to the GeForce 8800 GTS 512 because even the reference version runs Perseus Mandate at a comfortable speed in every display mode including 1920x1440.
Half-Life 2: Episode Two
Both versions of GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB, the reference and the pre-overclocked ones, reach the speed ceiling set by the configuration of our testbed at 1280x1024. The GeForce 8800 GTX does the same, though. The XFX card is superior at the higher resolutions, being slightly ahead of the reference card which in its turn is closely followed by the GeForce 8800 GTX. Every card delivers comfortable performance across all the display modes. The gameplay seems comfortable even at 1920x1200.
