Prey Performance


Performance Comparisons with Prey

After many years of development, Take-Two Interactive recently released the highly anticipated game Prey. Prey is based on 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 Doom 3, Prey features a fair 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 1280x1024 and 1600x1200.

We expected a bit more from Gigabyte's GeForce 7950 GT here, since it did so well in Quake 4, and both games are based on the Doom 3 engine. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. The overclocked XFX GeForce 7900 GT outpaces the Gigabyte's 7950 GT by several frames per second but there is still not a large delta between the cards.  In addition, the similarly priced Radeon X1950 Pro is beaten handily by the Gigabyte GeForce 7950GT, with or without AA enabled in this test.
