Sapphire Radeon X800 XT - PCI Express
Doom3 v1.1 - Multiplayer
|The first round of Doom 3 tests focused on single-player performance. This time around though, we'll take a look at a few tests using a custom multiplayer demo to see how things unfold. These tests were taken with our custom "HH_Frag2" demo, which is a recording of a five-player on-line match in the "Frag Chamber" map. We ran benchmarks with Doom 3 set to its "High-Quality" mode, at resolutions of 1,024 x 768 and 1,600 x 1,200 without AA enabled and then with 4X anti-aliasing and 8X aniso enabled.|
The ATi powered cards didn't fare quite as well in the Doom 3 multiplayer tests. The graphs look somewhat similar to the ones on the previous page, but the GeForce 6800 GT's performance advantage jumped a few percentage points in the multiplayer tests. This time around, the GeForce 6800 GT was up to 26% faster than any of the Radeon X800 XTs.
