XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition - G92 Performance

Game Benchmarks - CoD 2, F.E.A.R. and Oblivion

Call of Duty 2

Call of Duty 2 is a fairly recent game that uses a lot of DirectX 9.0c features, including real time shadows, amazing smoke effects and some nice looking HDR effects. This makes the game very taxing at these high resolutions. I played a fully patched up version of the game. Once again I played through the game with a two minute gaming session including explosions, smoke and also lots of snow.

G80 breezed through CoD 2, will the 8800 GT do the same?

Only just behind the two Ultra cards, the 8800GT beats out the 8800GTX in Call of Duty 2. It seems the new additions to G92 chip have improved speed pretty nicely.


F.E.A.R. is a game based on an engine that uses many features of DirectX 9.0c. It has volumetric lighting, soft shadows, parallax mapping and particle effects, with a slow-motion mode that really taxes today's top of the line GPU's. I used a fully patched version of the game with the latest patch. I played three two-minute runs on a taxing part of the game with plenty of action, using slow-motion for the full time whilst firing at enemy soldiers and using grenades that produce a cool "blast" contortion effect when blown up.

We know F.E.A.R. will look stunning at this resolution and no doubt that the 8800 GT will play the game well, but will it play it better than G80?

Here the XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition again does well, coming close and to one of the Ultra's and beating out the excellent Fatal1ty GTS.

Oblivion is an awesome RPG with a simply huge immersive environment, great graphics and incredibly realistic scenery. This game is currently one of the most testing games that you can buy and it is certainly a test of the high-end cards here. I chose to do a run-through of the Arena part of the game. I spoke to a character, did some magic whilst in a fight and fought in the arena that is pretty huge. Also, as well as doing this test I took a wander around to make sure that the benchmark resembled the general gameplay with each card.

Settings used are below:

Again the 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition does very well. Oblivion is a tough game to crack but it's certainly one that the 8800 GT does well with.
