First Encounter Assault Recon or F.E.A.R. Anyone who has played this game knows that it brings any computer to it’s knees. Fantastic visuals, this is one of the most advanced graphic engines we have seen. If you haven’t played this game you should really check it out. Both graphics and machine settings were on “Maximum” in the F.E.A.R. performance menu. Soft Shadows were turned OFF.
Here we see that the 7600GT can compete very well with the X1800GTO, tying it at the lower resolution and within a couple of frames at 1280×960. Don’t be fooled by the lower resolutions of this test, it takes a lot of GPU power to run this game at even 1024×768. Anything less than a 6800GT will need to run at much lower quality setting to even be playable.
