ATI Radeon X1K Refresh: X1950 XTX, X1900 XT 256MB, X1650 Pro, and X1300 XT
XHD Resolutions: Prey
|After many years of development, Take-Two Interactive recently released the highly anticipated game Prey. Prey is based upon an updated and modified version of the Doom 3 engine, and as such, performance characteristics between the two titles are very similar. Like Doom 3, Prey is an OpenGL-based game that uses extremely high-detailed textures and a ton of dynamic lighting and shadows. But unlike Doom3, Prey features some outdoor environments as well. We ran these Prey benchmarks using a custom demo with the game set to its "High-Quality" graphics mode, at resolutions of 1,920 x 1,200 and 2,560 x 1,600 with 4X AA and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled simultaneously.|
Our XHD Prey benchmarks are all about the GeForce 7950 GX2. In the single-card tests, the GeForce 7950 GX2 handily outpaced the Radeon X1950 XTX at both resolutions. The same basically holds true in the multi-GPU tests, although the Quad-SLI system's margins of victory are slightly smaller. When compared to the GeForce 7900 GTX though, the Radeon X1950 XTX fares much better. The Radeon X1950 XTX, whether running as a single card or linked up with a master card in a CrossFire configuration, outperforms the GeForce 7900 GTX or 7900 GTX SLI configurations regardless of resolution.
