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 "Medium-Quality" mode, at resolutions of 800x600 and 1,024 x 768 without any AA and then with 2X antialiasing and 8X anisotropic filtering enabled.

When you look at the stats, Doom 3 was a workload for either resolution with either video option.  However, when it came down to playability, the 1024x768 settings were actually OK in practice.  Even in extreme action, the test seemed fairly smooth and steady.  With a little more tweaking, 1024x768 may be worth some basic Doom 3 gameplay with the PX6200.
