Performance Comparisons with Rainbow Six: Vegas

Rainbow 6: Vegas

Released this past December, Rainbow Six: Vegas is a classic squad based first person shooter based on the Unreal 3 Engine. Combining great graphics with stellar gameplay, Rainbow Six: Vegas has been one of the best reviewed games in the past year. We put quality settings on High and with FRAPS, ran through a locally hosted server running the very popular Calypso Casino Map. These tests were run at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024 and 1,600 x 1,200 with no anti-aliasing and no anisotropic filtering enabled and with both 4X anti-aliasing and 8X anisotropic filtering enabled concurrently.
We see the 8600GTS OC2 once again come out on top in our Rainbow Six: Vegas tests with no AA or AF turned on.
With AA and AF turned on, the BFG GeForce 8600GTS OC2 is able to handle Rainbow Six: Vegas very well at 1280x1024x32, but when we crank up the resolution to 1600x1200x32, we averaged a relatively choppy 28.5FPS at normal frequencies and 31.4FPS when we overclocked the card's core past 800MHz.
