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 1,600 x 1,200 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.|
With Doom 3 multiplayer testing, all of the cards showed increased performance, but the X700 Pro put up the best scores of all. At 1024x768, the X700 Pro exceeded 60 FPS and managed to top the X600 XT no AA scores with AA and Anisotropic enabled. When we increased the resolution to 1600x1200, the X700 Pro maintained its solid lead over the other cards, leaving the X600 XT at a distant second spot.
