NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX and 8800 GTS: Unified Powerhouses
XHD Resolutions: 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 1920 x 1200and 2560 x 1600 with 4X AA and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled simultaneously.|
The results reported by our custom Prey benchmark at XHD resolutions somewhat mirror those reported by Quake 4 on the previous page. The GeForce 8800 GTX came in every so slightly behind the Radeon X1950 XTX at the higher resolution, but only the GX2 and 8800 GTX were faster at 1920 x 1200. Once again though, the new GeForce 8800 GTX put up one heck of a dominant performance, besting all of the competition by large double-digit percentages across the board.
