Benchmarks & Comparisons With Doom 3 - Single Player

Benchmarks & Comparisons With Doom 3 - Single Player
In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb.

Doom 3
id Software's games have long been pushing the limits of 3D graphics.  Quake, Quake 2, and Quake 3 were all instrumental in the success of 3D accelerators on the PC.  Now, years later, with virtually every new desktop computer shipping with a 3D accelerator, id is at it again with the release of the visually stunning Doom 3.  Doom 3 is an OpenGL game using extremely high-detailed textures and a ton of dynamic lighting and shadows.  We ran this benchmark using custom demos with Doom 3 set to its "High-Quality" mode, at resolutions of 1,024 x 768 and 1600 x 1200 without any AA and then with 4X antialiasing and 8X anisotropic filtering enabled.  Note: Doom 3 enabled 8X anisotropic filtering automatically when set to "High Quality" in the game's control panel.

Doom3's Single Player testing was a strong point for the Gigabyte X800 card.  With its 4 Pixel Pipeline advantage over the X700 Pro's, the X800 managed sizeable leads throughout.  With No AA/Aniso, the X800 held a 35 FPS lead over the 8 Pixel pipeline X700s.  At 1600x1200, the margins narrowed some, but the X800 managed a 50% advantage.
