Asus EN9600GT (NVIDIA 9600GT) TOP 512MB Review (Page 4 of 10)

Page 4 - Benchmark: FEAR

As usual, our first test that comes along in our standard benchmark set is FEAR. All settings were set to maximum and the only manipulated variables were AA and AF. 1680x1050 widescreen resolution is used to put more emphasis on the graphics card and less on the rest of the system. Soft Shadows were turned on; which is one of the more video card taxing settings in this game. Like the 3870, the 9600GT TOP performed relatively poorly against the bunch with AA and AF turned on -- but still managed to outperform the factory overclocked ATI Radeon HD 3870 by a good margin. In the no AA/AF test, however, the 3870 overtook the 9600GT in our benchmarks.
