Halo 1.06 Performance

Halo 1.06 Performance Tests
All Patched & Ready To Go!

Halo
For many gamers, the release of Halo marked the end of a long wait because it was originally released as an XBOX exclusive a few years back. No additional patches or tweaks are needed to benchmark with Halo, as Gearbox has included all of the necessary information in its README file. The Halo benchmark runs through four of the cut-scenes from the game, after which the average frame rate is recorded. We patched the game using the latest v1.06 patch and ran this benchmark twice, once at 1280 x 1024 and then again at 1600 x 1200. Anti-aliasing doesn't work properly with Halo, so all of the tests below were run with anti-aliasing disabled.

Synthetic benchmarks be damned, as Halo has the GeForce 7800GT based NX78T256V-B on top, with the two Radeon's trailing behind.  In the lower resolution testing, the RX18L256V-B actually comes in a frame behind the X850XT.  However, at 1600x1200, it appears that the X1800XL's more efficient design allows it to keep pace with the 7800GT, while the X850XT slips more than ten frames back.
