Performance Comparisons with Rainbow Six: Vegas
|Released this past December, Rainbow Six: Vegas is a classic squad based first person shooter based on the Unreal 3 Engine. Combining great graphics with stellar gameplay, Rainbow Six: Vegas has been one of the best reviewed games in the past year. We put quality settings on High and with FRAPS, ran through a locally hosted server running the very popular Calypso Casino Map. These tests were run at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024 and 1,600 x 1,200 with no anti-aliasing and no anisotropic filtering enabled and with both 4X anti-aliasing and 8X anisotropic filtering enabled concurrently.|
In the Unreal Tournament 3 powered Rainbow Six: Vegas game, we see more of the same with the reference NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT beating out the Radeon HD 2600 Pro cards by significant margins.
With AA and AF turned on, Rainbow Six: Vegas caused trouble for all of our cards, with the average frame rates of the cards ranging from 22.9-15.6 frames per second. And once again, we see the GeForce 8600GT take the lead and come out on top.
