Benchmarks & Comparisons With Doom 3 - Multi-player
|The first round of Doom 3 focused on single-player performance. In this round we'll run a series of multiplayer tests and see how things unfold. These timedemos were run with our custom "HH_Frag2" demo, which is a recording of a five-player online match that took place in the "Frag Chamber" map area. We ran benchmarks with Doom 3 set to its "High-Quality" mode at resolutions of 1,024 x 768 and 1600 x 1200 without any anti-aliasing enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled concurrently. Note: Doom 3 enabled 8X anisotropic filtering automatically when set to "High Quality" in the game's control panel.|
We saw more of the same behavior with the Multi-Player test as we saw with the Single-Player module. At 1024x768, the X850 Pro maintained an even 11 FPS lead in both tests. At 1600x1200, the No AA test differences were 10.5 FPS while the 4X AA/8X Aniso test tightened up to a 3 FPS difference.
