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, many years later, with virtually every new desktop computer shipping with some sort of 3D accelerator, id is at it again with the visually stunning Doom 3. Like most of id's previous titles, Doom 3 is an OpenGL game that uses extremely high-detailed textures and a ton of dynamic lighting and shadows. We ran this batch of Doom 3 single player benchmarks using a custom demo with the game set to its "High-Quality" mode, at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024 and 1,600 x 1,200 without anti-aliasing enabled and then again with 4X AA and 8X aniso enabled simultaneously.


If we disregard the dual-GeForce 6800 Ultra SLI configuration, which currently costs significantly more than any of the single cards we tested, only the GeForce 7800 GTX was faster than the 7800 GT in our custom Doom 3 benchmark. What's interesting to note, is the significant impact on performance the high-clock speed of the XFX card had in this test. The 50MHz core clock speed advantage gave the XFX card up to a 12% performance boost in some configurations.
