Fallout 3

Fallout 3 is an action role-playing game released by Bethesda Game Studios. It is the third major game in the Fallout series, and it has received a positive response from critics who have praised its open-ended gameplay and flexible character-leveling system. fallout 3 has been compared to the 2007 game BioShock for its setting and use of elements from mid-twentieth century American culture. We tested the game at resolutions of 1,920 x 1,200 and 2,560 x 1,600 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled and all in game graphical options set to their maximum values.

Fallout 3 showed very little variation between all of the cards we tested, with the exception of the 9800 GX2. Like FarCry 2 on the previous page, Fallout 3 seems to benefit from frame buffers larger than 512MB when running at high-resolutions with high levels anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering enabled. The 512MB available to each GPU on the 9800 GX2 just isn't enough for this test once the resolution is increased to 2560x1600.
