XHD Resolutions: Prey

Performance Comparisons with Prey XHD

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 the two titles are very similar.  Like Doom 3, Prey is also an OpenGL game that uses extremely high-detailed textures and a plethora of dynamic lighting and shadows.  But unlike Doom3, 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 1920 x 1200and 2560 x 1600 with 4X AA and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled simultaneously.


The GeForce 8800 GTX has no trouble with our custom Prey benchmark when running at XHD resolutions. At 1920x1200 and 2560x1600, the GeForce 8800 GTX SLI configuration clearly outpaced the competition. The GeForce 8800 GTS too outpaced everything but the GTX at 1920x1200, but the Radeon X1950 CrossFire rig took second place at 2560x1600 by a paltry 1.4 frames per second.
