Benchmarks with Halo
|For many gamers, the release of Halo marked the end of a long wait, since it was originally released as an Xbox exclusive a few years back. No additional patches or tweaks are needed to benchmark with Halo, as Gearbox has included all of the necessary information in their README file. The Halo benchmark runs through four of the cut-scenes from the game, after which the average frame rate is recorded. We patched the game using the latest v1.06 patch and ran this benchmark twice, once at 800x600 and then again at 1024x768.|
Running at lower resolution, each card can be considered playable, however, the 6200 took a 9 FPS lead. Once we increased the resolution to 1024x768, the X300 dipped below 30 FPS and started to struggle. The 6200 settled in at 30 FPS and showed some signs of a struggle as well.
