Unofficial F.E.A.R. Performance Test Chart & Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

My highest on the AMD setup I think was 150ish with SLI 8800GTXs, with this I hit 200. Not a huge difference but then again, the only REAL difference is slightly faster processor speed and 16x lanes instead of 8, cuz FEAR only uses 1 or 2 CPU cores at most. I'll post exact numbers and such when I'm not busy doing an OCDB Entry cuz 3.666GHz just tested Prime 95 stable for 17 hours ;)

"virtual memory paging file is turned on, which will severely degrade your performance."

so having a virtual memory paging file is bad. so i should tun mine off instead of having given it 4gb

I'll post some numbers once I have a 8800GTS and my Opteron running at 3.0GHz.

Well, my Opty 185 @ 3Gs with SLI 8800GTXs got 49min-128avg-316max @ 625x980 on the cards.

I just tested it at those speeds on this thing at 3.666GHz and got 195FPS average.

Single 8800GTX with the Opty got 52min, 123avg, 288max. I haven't tested single card on this system since I was clocked at 3Gs even.

At 1920x1200 on SLI and the Opty it got 115FPS average. With this processor, I'm getting around 160FPS average I believe.

So the frame rate increase from a 3.0GHz Opteron to a 3.666GHz Quad is noticable, despite FEAR not being a dual or quad core optimized game. Probably the increase is mostly due to the difference in processor performance and speed.

here is mine

AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.4ghz (240x10), 4x512mb Kingston 3-3-3-8 , Asus A8N-SLI SE, EVGA 8800gts 640mb Superclocked 576/1700

26 - 45 - 72

i checked, the res it ran at was 1024x768

Would you mind making a run at that res 16x/16x with three different CPU speeds? (3.0 3.3 3.66?) I'm trying to piece together the point of bottleneck at max drivers settings for Core 2 architectures on SLI GTXs. I'd do it myself... but I don't have A GTX let alone two to SLI.
