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.
F.E.A.R. is a pretty recent game title that many people are still playing today. At 1024×768 with the quality again set to high we found that the memory played a critical role in gaming perfomance as we saw we found a 35 frame per second difference on our test system. By being able to run our memory at the fastest clock speeds we it meant a 37% increase in frame rates. This just goes to show that the video card and the processor are not the only important things in the system!
