ATI Radeon X800XL 512MB & Catalyst 5.6 Driver Update
Doom 3: Multi-Player
|The first round of Doom 3 tests focused on single-player performance. This time around though, we'll take a look at a few tests using a custom multiplayer demo to see how things unfold. These tests were taken with our custom "HH_Frag2" demo, which is a recording of a five-player on-line match in the "Frag Chamber" map. We 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 AA enabled and then with 4X anti-aliasing and 8X aniso enabled.|
The performance results using our custom multi-player Doom 3 benchmark mirrored our single-player results. The 512MB Radeon X800 XL performed similarly to the 256MB board at both resolutions, and the Catalyst v5.6 drivers had very little impact on performance.
