Benchmarks / Comparisons With Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
|We also ran through a batch of timedemos with the OpenGL game Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Wolfenstein: ET is a free, standalone multiplayer game that is based on the excellent Return to Castle Wolfenstein, that was released a few years back. It uses a heavily modified version of the Quake 3 engine, which makes it a very easy to use benchmarking tool. We created our own custom demo and used the built-in timedemo feature to check each card's frame-rate. The tests below were run at 1024x768 and again at 1600x1200, without anti-aliasing and again with 4X AA and 8X aniso filtering enabled concurrently.|
This is one of those older tests that is becoming less and less taxing on today's video hardware. This time we saw a rare stance by the PCX 5750, which took a second place spot at 1600x1200. Nonetheless, this was still the X700 Pro's show, maintaining a minimum of 20 FPS over its closest competitor at either resolution. When we enabled the AA and Anisotropic Filtering, the differences were a few frames short of double in most cases.
