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.|
Our custom Prey benchmark proved to be somewhat of a strong point for the Viper Radeon HD 2900 XT 1GB. At all three resolutions it was a couple of frames per second faster than the 512MB version and it outpaced both of the GeForce 8800 GTS cards at all but the lowest resolution. It still couldn't come close to the performance put forth by the GeForce 8800 GTX, however.
