Benchmarking With Chronicles of Riddick

Benchmarking With Chronicles of Riddick - Escape From Butcher Bay
Doom 3 Engine at Work
Chronicles of Riddick
Starbreeze Studios is responsible for creating this season's surprise hit (at least on the PC), The Chronicles of Riddick - Escape From Butcher Bay.  Those familiar with movie will recall Butcher Bay was one of the prison options on tap for the main character.  While the movie never actually made it to Butcher Bay, we find the main character right at home in this surprisingly good game.  Not only does it boast excellent game play with stunning visuals and mature story line, the Chronicles of Riddick proves to be a tough challenge and a game worth buying, making it an excellent candidate for benchmarking.

At 1024x768, we saw a tight pattern, with the three cards keeping within 5FPS in the No AA test.  With 4XAA/8X Aniso enabled, the scores were even tighter, with the 6800 managing to slip ahead of the X850XTs by a slim margin.  At 1600x1200, the No AA pattern continued to be close while the 4XAA/8X Aniso test was even closer, with the 6800 topping the X850XT Turbo.
