Benchmarks & Comparisons With Doom 3 - Multi-player
|The first round of Doom 3 focused on single-player performance. In this round we'll run a series of multiplayer tests and see how things unfold. These timedemos were run with our custom "HH_Frag2" demo, which is a recording of a five-player online match that took place in the "Frag Chamber" map area. We ran benchmarks with Doom 3 set to its "High-Quality" mode at resolutions of 1,024 x 768 and 1600 x 1200 without any anti-aliasing enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled concurrently. Note: Doom 3 enabled 8X anisotropic filtering automatically when set to "High Quality" in the game's control panel.|
With our Doom 3 Multi-player test, the trend was similar to what we saw in the single-player test. Once again, the X800 Pro got trounced by the 6800 and the NX6600GT got its licks in too. The only time the NX6600GT succumbed to the pressure was with the 4XAA/8X Aniso test at 1600x1200.
