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.
FEAR performance was actually a big shocker for us as the XFX 7900 GS is actually faster than the 7900 GT until 1600×1200! The only video cards faster than the XFX 7900 GS in FEAR cost nearly double its price.
