Testing: Light Stress Benchmarks
Without further delay, here are the light stress benchmarks:
At both resolutions, the GeForce 8800 GTS out-performed the GeForce 7900 GT by more then 100% in the Shader Model 2.0 tests.
Just as it did with the Shader Model 2.0 tests, the SM 3.0 benchmark proves that the GeForce 8800 GTS is easily twice as powerful as the previous generation. Hopefully, 3DMark07 will incorporate Shader Model 4.0 tests so that Benchmark Reviews can follow up on the progress.
Not much surprise in the Prey Demo results, which begin to indicate that the FOXCONN GeForce 8800 GTS just begins to be tasked at the 1280x1024 resolution. These results were based on the Guru3D demo and the HOC benchmark tools.
In the Doom 3 tests, the differences begin to grow less evident, but they are still clearly there. If you would like to duplicate this test with your own installation of Doom 3 v1.3, simply open the command console by pressing CTRL+ALT+~, and type in "timedemo demo1". As you will see in the more stressful benchmarks, the FOXCONN GeForce 8800 GTS earns its keep at the top of the hill.
