Diamond Viper Radeon HD 2900 XT 1GB
|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 it and Doom 3 are quite similar. Also like Doom 3, Prey is an OpenGL-based game that uses extremely high-detailed textures and a plethora of dynamic lighting and shadows. But unlike Doom, Prey features a fare share of outdoor environments as well. We ran these Prey benchmarks using a custom recorded timedemo with the game set to its "High-Quality" graphics mode, at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024 through 1,920 x 1,200 with 4X AA and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled simultaneously.|
The Diamond Video HD 2900 XT 1GB CrossFire rig performed relatively well in our custom Prey benchmark. Here, the dual 1GB-card setup was on par with the 512MB Radeons and both GeForce 8800 GTS configurations. The GeForce 8800 GTX SLI configuration was much faster than everything else though.
