Asus 9800 GX2 1GB (EN9800GX2)

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 feature set. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions and is fast and furious, perfect for our test suite.

Call of Duty 4 shows that the performance of the new 9800 GX2 is generaly in the region of double that of the previous generation single 8800 GT, which is about right.

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. F.E.A.R. is a little older game so Tri SLI should handle this well and look fantastic.
Again the 9800 GX2 shows that it is a very fast card, performing just below the numbers for 3 way SLI again.

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. I've found Bioshock behaves strangely sometimes in benchmarks so it will be interesting to see how it does here.
Bioshock without the crazy 8 x AA shows the 9800 GX2 hitting high numbers. Adding that amount of AA in the Unreal Engine lags out the GPU, but that is to be expected.

Good performance for a single card, but way 2 expensive atm. Great review as always Kempez.

The demonstrably cheaper link does work for me on the last page.Quote

Super effort as always Kemp. Although I would have liked to have seen an 3870 X2 included as a comparison instead of the 3850.Quote
