Albatron GeForce 8600 GTS Video Card ReviewWed, May 09, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Sierra; F.E.A.R w/ v1.0.8 patch:
F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault and Recon) is a first-person close-quarters combat game for the PC. The story begins when a paramilitary force infiltrates a multi-billion dollar aerospace compound, and the government responds by sending in Special Forces. The group loses contact with the government when an eerie signal interrupts radio communications–and when that interference subsides moments later, the team has been destroyed. That’s where you come in. 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 the potential crisis before it gets out of control. High and Max settings represent the built in game control settings. Soft Shadows were not used.
In FEAR we see that the Albatron 8600 GTS is very slightly lower in performance than our overclocked XFX 8600 GTS card. The X1950 Pro, 7900 GT, and 7900 GS are still able to best both of the 8600 GTS cards by a wide margain once the resolution goes above 1024×768.
