The story begins as an unidentified paramilitary force infiltrates a multi-billion dollar aerospace compound. The government responds by sending in Special Forces, but loses contact as an eerie signal interrupts radio communications. When the interference subsides moments later, the team has been literally torn apart. As part of a classified strike team created to deal with threats no one else can handle, your mission is simple: Eliminate the intruders at any cost. Determine the origin of the signal. And contain this crisis before it spirals out of control.
For all tests, we used the latest available patch which updates the game engine to v1.08. The game offers 1280x1024 resolution, which was used for all tests. We maxed all details for CPU and VGA card, except for Soft Shadows and AA/AF. We used the card's 3D Control panel to enable AA/AF as indicated in each graph.
Below are the results for the built-in benchmark test:
The Gainward 8600GT PCX 512MB did not perform very well here, and in fact produced a lower framerate than the Foxconn 7900GS.
Enabling AA/AF impacts on the performance of all the tested cards. Looking at the performance of the cards, the Foxconn 7900GS fares well until 8xAA when it fall below the 8600GT. The Asus EN8600GTS is fastest in all cases, however at 16QAA the performance difference is very slight.
