Doom 3 (Multi-Player)
|The first round of Doom 3 focused on single-player performance. In this round we'll run a series of multi-player tests and see how things unfold. These timedemos were run with our custom "HH_Frag2" demo, which is a recording of a five-player on-line match that took place in the "Frag Chamber" map area. For this batch of tests, we also ran benchmarks with Doom 3 set to its "High-Quality" mode at resolutions of 1,024 x 768 and 1,600 x 1,200 without any anti-aliasing enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled concurrently. Note: Doom 3 enabled 8X anisotropic filtering automatically when set to "High Quality" in the game's control panel.|
Our custom multi-player Doom 3 benchmark tells pretty much the same story as the single-player results from the previous page. The All-In-Wonder X800 XT performed well, but not nearly as well as the NVIDIA powered GeForce 6800 GT. In this round of tests, the GeForce 6800 GT's performance was a bit more dominant, as it was able to outperform all of the ATI powered cards at both resolution, in both test configurations, with the lone exception of the Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition in the 1024x768 tests.
