Benchmarks with Halo
|For many gamers, the release of Halo marked the end of a long wait, since it was originally released as an Xbox exclusive a few years back. No additional patches or tweaks are needed to benchmark with Halo, as Gearbox has included all of the necessary information in their README file. The Halo benchmark runs through four of the cut-scenes from the game, after which the average frame rate is recorded. We patched the game using the latest v1.06 patch and ran this benchmark twice, once at 1024x768 and then again at 1600x1200. Anti-aliasing doesn't work properly with Halo at the moment, so all of the test below were run with anti-aliasing disabled.|
When we look at the 1024x768 tests, it was all ATI, with the 6800GT trailing a minimum of 19FPS. When we increased the resolution to 1600x1200, the GeForce 6800GT bounced back, barely topping the All-In-Wonder X800 XL by less than 1FPS.
