Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere. His life changes when an otherworldly crisis forces him to awaken spiritual powers from his long-forgotten birthright. Abducted along with his people to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, he sets out to save himself and his girlfriend and eventually his planet.
Prey is a serious, dark story, based on an authentic Cherokee mythology. Themes of sacrifice, love and responsibility are explored and the story dives into emotional territory not yet explored by similar games. Prey is based on Quake 3 engine and for sure will keep you awake many nights...
We used the latest available patch that updated the game engine to v1.2.0. For all tests, we used hocbench that offers all benchmarking options through a GUI. We used the built-in Guru3D timedemo and all results are posted below:
Without AA/AF enabled, the PowerColor X1950Pro had the third best performance behind the eVGA 7950GT KO and XFX 7950GT Silent.
Enabling the various AA/AF rendering modes, we got very good performance from the three cards. The PowerColor X1950Pro again at 16xAF/4xAA, reached the XFX 7950GT Silent and at 16xAF/6xAA had 46FPS, a very good performance.
