Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro
|After many years of development, Take-Two Interactive recently released the highly anticipated game Prey. Prey is based on 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 Doom 3, Prey features a fair 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 1280x1024 and 1600x1200.|
Just like in Quake 4, the X1950 gets outpaced by the overclocked 7900 GT. This is no surprised considering that Quake 4 and Prey are both based on the Doom 3 engine. Prey does stress the system a bit more than Quake 4 though.
