Benchmarks 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 1280 x 1024 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.|
In the Doom 3 Multiplayer test, the two X700 Pros still kept it close, but the 256MB card did enjoy a slightly wider lead, averaging 5 FPS at both resolutions with the No AA test. With Anti-aliasing and Anisotropic filtering turned on, the scores evened out somewhat.
