 S. T. A. L. K. E. R. - Call of Pripyat
 DX11 Gaming Performance


Call of Pripyat is the third game in the STALKER series and throws in DX11 to the mix. This benchmark is based on one of the locations found within the latest game. Testing includes four stages and utilizes various weather conditions, as well as different time of day settings. It offers a number of presets and options, including multiple versions of DirectX, resolutions, antialiasing, etc. SunShafts represents the most graphically challenging stage available. We conducted our testing with DX11 enabled, 2560 x 1600 resolution, no anti-aliasing, and ultra settings.

In STALKER, the Matrix recorded average frame rates of 28 FPS, and 21 FPS minimum. The stock 5870 showed slightly faster frame rates, along with the SOC 470.  Zotac's overclocked GTX 480 came in 50% faster during this benchmark.
