Asus 9600 GT - G94 unveiled

Call of Duty 4, F.E.A.R. and Bioshock

Call of Duty 4

Call of Duty 4 is a stunning DirectX 9.0c based game that really looks awesome and has a very full featureset. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions and is fast and furious, perfect for our test suite.
 
CoD 4
 
CoD 4 shows the Asus 9600 GT has the guts to stay in competition with the big boys of the 8 series. Notice that it also beats out it's HD3850 rival.
 
 
F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. is a game based on the Lithtech Jupiter EX engine. It has volumetric lighting, soft shadows, parallax mapping and particle effects. This is a fairly old game but was a very testing one at the time of release and still looks fantastic, so we've kept it in.
 
FEAR
 
In F.E.A.R. the HD3850 has it's revenge with a great performance, although the Max FPS of the 9600 GT is higher. Gaming in F.E.A.R. was great as it should be with this mid range GPU.
 
 
Bioshock

Bioshock is a game based on the Unreal Engine 3. It uses some DirectX10 features such as awesome water and smoke effects. The detail level in the game, combined with a frantic pace makes for an excellent benchmark.
 
Bioshock
 
Bioshock again shows that the 9600 GT plays a good game, especially with the DX10 effects. However, the HD3850 wins through again here.
