Doom 3: Multiplayer
|The first round of Doom 3 tests on the previous page focused on single-player performance. This time around, though, we'll take a look at a few test results using a custom multi-player demo to see how things unfold. These tests were taken with our custom "HH_Frag2" demo, which is a recording of a five-player online deathmatch that took place in the "Frag Chamber" map. Like the single-player tests, we ran this batch of benchmarks with Doom 3 set to its "High-Quality" mode. The timedemos were run at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024 and 1,600 x 1,200 without anti-aliasing enabled and then with 4X anti-aliasing and 8X anisotropic filtering enabled concurrently.|
Our custom multiplayer Doom 3 benchmark tells the same story as the single player benchmark on the previous page. Regardless of the test settings or resolution, the EVGA e-GeForce 7800 GTX was the fastest single video card we tested. And just looking at those graphs proves ATI has their work cut out for them. The EVGA e-GeForce 7800 GTX makes the Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition seem like an entry-level video card when playing Doom 3.
