S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat - DX11

 S. T. A. L. K. E. R. - Call of Pripyat
 DX11 Gaming Performance


Call of Pripyat is the third game in the STALKER series and throws in DX11 to the mix. This benchmark is based on one of the locations found within the latest game. Testing includes four stages and utilizes various weather conditions, as well as different time of day settings. It offers a number of presets and options, including multiple versions of DirectX, resolutions, antialiasing, etc. SunShafts represents the most graphically challenging stage available. We conducted our testing with DX11 enabled, 2560 x 1600 resolution, no anti-aliasing, and ultra settings.

After testing STALKER in various resolutions, the HD 6870 was the slowest card in every case. The MSI Hawk GTX 460 was impressive here, as it edged out the more expensive HD 5870 in 2 of the tests.
