Doom III User Bench Comparison
Posted by [PM], 11/04/2002 12:11 PM
Robert Dhondrup a regular [H] reader submitted the following information regarding a test run on similiar Atlon XP systems with a) GeForce 4 Ti 4600 and b) Radeon 9700 Pro: Both PCs used Athlon 2100 XPs at 800x600. Since the alpha version of Doom3 had no working options menu, the only way to configure the game is by manually editing the .cfg files with Quake commands. WE SAW AN OPTION IN .CFG for the NV30 options to be turned on (coolness, eh?). The Radeon 9700 Pro drew a consistent ~50-60+ fps while the Ti 4600 was really straining, going from 12-15 fps to an occasional 30 fps. On some screens it went as low as 7 fps! Alpha is the keyword here and I guess in retail a Ti 4600 will do the job well enough for most people. Still NV30 is going to add to competition.
