XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition - G92 Performance

Game Benchmarks - - Quake 4, C&C 3 and Bioshock

Quake 4

Quake 4 is a game built on the Doom 3 engine. This uses many DX 9.0c features and is a game that nVidia traditionally did well on being an OpenGL game. Once again I did three two minute runs on Quake 4 on each card and took the average of all my readings from these. I played a fast and furious part of the game that required both internal and external scenes.

Historically, Nvidia have done very well in the Doom 3 engine and the 8800 GT should be no different.

Again the XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition does very well against the competition. The GTX does have a higher FPS over the min-max-average in the game, but only by a small margin.

Command and Conquer 3

C&C3 is the much awaited RTS from EA. Hugely popular and with some pretty nice visuals almost every modern PC should be able to play it. I tested a skirmish right at the end when I had a screen full of mechs to defeat the enemy. AA was set to the highest level it could be in-game.

There shouldn't be much difference to the performance of all of the top cards here, but let's take a look.

Funnily enough, the 8800 GT performed a little under the rest of the top-end cards, but nothing that you would actually notice in-game.

Bioshock

Bioshock is a recent FPS shooter by 2K games. Based on the UT3 engine it has a large amount of advanced DirectX techniques including excellent water rendering and superb lighting and smoke techniques. As I am hoping to do a DirectX 10 comparison once we have a few games out to test, I used the DirectX 9.0c path in Windows XP to test the game in this part of the review.

Bioshock uses the UT3 engine and it has to be said that the XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition performs very well. The UT3 engine obviously utilises more advanced features, taxing the card more than the other games.

Nice review........that's one of the cards I'm currently looking at getting......

One small question for you all though, with those 2 sets of mounting holes around the core, what type of GPU water blocks will fit w/wo adapter plates/fittings????? Just wondering if my current Swiftech MCW60 will fit without having to get any sort of adapters.Quote
