Doom 3: Multi-Player
|The first round of Doom 3 focused on single-player performance. Now we'll run a round of multiplayer tests and see how things unfold. These tests were taken with our custom "HH_Frag2" demo, which is a recording of a five-player online match 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 1,600 x 1,200 without any anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled concurrently.|
The GeForce 6800 GT continued its winning ways in our custom Doom 3 multi-player benchmark. In this round of testing, the GeForce's margins of victory were a bit larger than in the single-player tests though. With this demo the GeForce 6800 GT was up to 26% faster then either of the Radeon X800 XTs we tested. It seems like ATi still has a bit of work to do on their drivers with regard to Doom 3 performance.
