1920x1200 - HL2 and Quake 4

We continued our testing of the new GeForce 7950 GX2 with another round of high-resolutions tests using our custom Half Life 2 and Quake 4 benchmarks.

Even at an ultra high resolution of 1920x1200 with 4X anti-aliasing and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled, Half Life 2 was still almost completely CPU bound.  In this batch of tests, the Radeon X1900 XTX and X1900 XT CrossFire rigs once again finished at the top of the charts, but the NVIDIA powered cards were not very far behind.

Quake 4 showed a much larger performance delta at 1920x1200 than any of the other benchmarks we ran. Here, the GeForce 7950 GX2 doubled the performance of an X1900 XTX when clocked at XFX's specifications, and beat the XTX by almost 30 frames per second when clocked at NVIDIA's reference specs.  The XFX card was faster than an X1900 XT CrossFire configuration as well, but the GeForce 7900 GTX rig was the top dog by about 5 frames per second.
