Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX
|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 1,280 x 1,024 and 1,600 x 1,200 with 4X AA and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled simultaneously.|
The performance trend we witnessed earlier returned with our custom Prey benchmark. In this test, the Sapphire Radeon X1950 XTX beat the GeForce 7900 GTX, but the GeForce 7950 GX2 and newer GeForce 8 series cards were dominant. The GeForce 8800 GTX in particular was much faster than everything else we tested.
