Doom 3 - Multi-Player
|The first round of Doom 3 timedemos focused on single-player performance. Now we'll run a round of multi-player tests and see how things unfold. These tests were taken with our custom "HH_Frag2" demo, which is a recording of a 5 player on-line match in the "Frag Chamber" map. We also ran these benchmarks with Doom 3 set to its "High-Quality" mode, at resolutions of 1024x768 and 1600x1200 without AA or Aniso Filtering enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Anisotropic filtering enabled.|
The multi-player Doom 3 performance results mirror what we saw with our single-player demo. Once again, the Mobility Radeon 9800 couldn't quite keep up with the Radeon 9800 Pro, but we were all expecting that by now, right? We should reiterate, however, that the Mobility Radeon 9800's performance will likely increase in significantly in this game when updated drivers are released. Still, looking at the relatively high framerates the Mobility Radeon 9800 was able to attain throughout our testing, potential gaming laptop buyers should be pleased.
