Benchmarks & Comparisons With Doom 3 - Single Player
In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb.

Doom 3
id Software's games have long been pushing the limits of 3D graphics.  Quake, Quake 2, and Quake 3 were all instrumental in the success of 3D accelerators on the PC.  Now, years later, with virtually every new desktop computer shipping with a 3D accelerator, id is at it again with the release of the visually stunning Doom 3.  Doom 3 is an OpenGL game using extremely high-detailed textures and a ton of dynamic lighting and shadows.  We ran this benchmark using custom demos with Doom 3 set to its "High-Quality" mode, at resolutions of 1,024 x 768 and 1,600 x 1,200 without any AA and then with 4X antialiasing and 8X anisotropic filtering enabled.  Note: Doom 3 enabled 8X anisotropic filtering automatically when set to "High Quality" in the game's control panel.

 

Doom 3 is another one of those games that can severely tax a video card.  Here, we ran our custom demo with the High Quality setting enabled and as you can see, the X700 Pro was the only card that came close to playable performance scores.  The PCX 5750 did make another rare stand against the ATI X600 cards at 1024x768, but that was soon quelled when we increased the resolution to 1600x1200.  At this resolution, even the X700 Pro stands to benefit from reducing image quality to bring performance up to playable levels.
