Soft Shadows and Fur

Soft Shadows OpenGL Benchmark
Higher Numbers Are Better

Realistic Fur OpenGL Benchmark
Higher Numbers Are Better

OpenGL effects benchmarks; always a joy to run.  The FirePro V8700 card performs great here, too. Soft Shadows rendering performance is up by massive amounts, easily besting every other card we've tested. In the interest of fairness hower, we should note that ATI's soft shadow rendering didn't look quite as smooth as Nvidia's rendering mechanism. Fur rendering was a bit faster, but not nearly to the same "dominance" level - although we noted no difference in visual quality when it came to this benchmark.
