Default F.E.A.R. GPU Performance Tests: Setting a New Standard

As we said in our introduction, FEAR does indeed set a new standard for games, and there is no denying the quality of its graphics. Perhaps there could have been more variety in some areas, but the beauty of the action sequences can't be matched in any first person shooter we've seen. For graphics, FEAR paves the way for a new generation of games, and is also the first game able to bring the highest powered cards available to their knees when played at its full graphical potential.

this game looks G R E A T , but the gameplay is even better, reminds me of Half Life 1 first time I played it; the enemy AI is very good, and it's creepy and has a very nice atmosphere

I'm playing it at 1024x768x32bit with CPU&GPU in-game settings on "High"

first run with 77.xx drivers was average of 29fps.. not too good.

upgraded to 81.85 drivers (just released today) and got 36fps average. I looked through the driver settings and noticed I had "4x FSAA" enabled for all games.. DOH

disabled this and now I get:

The new driver helps increasing FPS to my card too. DOOM3 HQ 1028 is now >71 FSP. It doesn't do anything in 3DMark01, in fact it lowers the score a bit.

36fps is not that great with a very good GPU (6800GT) and low settings... i hope it will play fine on Doc's r9800 pro.


A pitty they only included new videocards.
