F.E.A.R Extraction Point Performance Preview

X-Bit Labs have managed to get their hands on the demo for the add-on for the popular game F.E.A.R and run it using the latest crop of hardware to illustrate what hardware will provide the best possible performance for this title. Using the Jupiter EX graphics engine and Havok physics engine, the title demands some significant resources for those aiming to get the full visual effect of the game. In short, one had best have a strong CPU with 2GB of memory and a dual-GPU solution if they have any intention of seeing this title running at 1280x960 with full FSAA and AF.

Obviously, F.E.A.R. Extraction Point is tremendously hungry for graphics card's performance and we the better one you use, the more pleasurable experience you will have. Based on the numbers we have obtained today, among comparable graphics cards based on visual processing units from ATI Technologies and Nvidia, the GeForce boards would deliver higher performance. The exceptions are the Radeon X1950 Pro and the Radeon X1900 XT, which either beat, or come in line with the rivals - the models 7900 GS and 7950 GT.
