Doom 3
id Software's games have long been pushing the limits of 3D graphics.  Quake, Quake 2, and Quake 3 were all instrumental in the success of 3D accelerators on the PC.  Now, years later, with virtually every new desktop computer shipping with a 3D accelerator, id is at it again with the release of the visually stunning Doom 3.  Doom 3 is an OpenGL based game that uses extremely high-detail textures and a ton of dynamic lighting and shadows.  We ran this benchmark using custom demos with the game set to its "High-Quality" mode, at resolutions of 1,024 x 768 and 1,600 x 1,200 without any AA and then with 4X anti-aliasing and 8X anisotropic filtering enabled.  Note: Doom 3 enabled 8X anisotropic filtering automatically when set to "High Quality" in the game's control panel.


ATI has done an admirable job optimizing their drivers for higher performance under Doom 3, but they still trail NVIDIA by a decent margin in this game. In our custom single-player Doom 3 benchmark, the All-In-Wonder X800 XT outperformed the Radeon X800 XL but lagged behind the Radeon X850 XT and GeForce 6800 GT at both resolutions, regardless of whether or not anti-aliasing was enabled.
