Performance Comparisons with Prey

Performance Comparisons with Prey

After many years of development, Take-Two Interactive recently released the highly anticipated game Prey. Prey is based upon an updated and modified version of the Doom 3 engine, and as such performance characteristics between the two titles are very similar.  Like Doom 3, Prey is also an OpenGL game that uses extremely high-detailed textures and a plethora of dynamic lighting and shadows.  But unlike Doom3, Prey features a fare share of outdoor environments as well.  We ran these Prey benchmarks using a custom recorded timedemo with the game set to its "High-Quality" graphics mode, at resolutions of 1024x768 and 1280x1024 with 4X AA and 8X anisotropic filtering enabled simultaneously.

With our Prey test, the RX2600XT performed roughly on the same level as the GeForce 8600GT, while the GeForce GTS maintained no less than a 10 FPS advantage.   When compared to the Radion 2600 XT, the MSI RX2600XT managed a small 1 FPS increase in both resolutions showing no measureable gains from having twice the memory and a nominal speed boost.
