Press alt+ctrl+tilde to get into the console, then type "timdemo demo1" w/o the quotes. I suggest you run it twice and take the 2nd result, because it was choppy for me the first time, and was not the 2nd time as it had all been loaded.

1024x768 High detail @ 200x11: 50.0 fps
1024x768 High detail @ 225x11: 51.0 fps

Specs are 9800 pro flashed to XT and at stock XT speeds (will test to find max D3 OC), XP 2400 mobile at 2200mhz (forgot it was so low, i had it low cause of temps and probs with one game but ill put it back up and test again soon).

K i ran it at my 24/7 speed of 225x11 (2475) and got 51 FPS, so not much of a change!

That sounds like a rly nice score for ur specs... could you list your settings in detail, both in D3 and in your ATI control panel?

When I run the demo, AA is not on, but in game it is on, and i cannot get it to turn off. It looks like at least 4xAA, and makes it run much slower than I want it to. I have AA set to app pref in the ctrl panel, and I have it set to off in D3, but it is still there. I know the game is dark but I am not imagining anything. I can see the visual difference in the timedemo to in game. Anyone else have this problem or know how i can fix it?

For the control panel I have AA set under custom settings for OpenGL, set to performance 2X, Texture Pref set to Performance, Mipmap Detail level Performance, and Vsync off. I have AA set to off in game, but im not sure if it overrides the control panel. I dont think you can actually turn it all the way off in there either.

Mmm, k. I have AA/AF set to app. pref in the ctrl panel, and all detail settings set to max, and vsync off. I think Doom 3 uses 8x aniso on "high", that's what it looks like in the config file anyways.

I'm about to go hook up my computer to our tv and 5.1 system in the living room... this should scare the sh*t out of me:)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  (pray for my soul!!!!!!!!).

<b>I second that notion to run the demo once through before actual testing!!!</b>

Doom 3 Benchmarks

timedemo demo1

Athlon 2500+
Asus A7N8X Deluxe Rev. 2
768 Mb DDR PC2700 Dual-Channel
Sapphire 9800 Pro 128 (256-bit mem.), default clock speeds
80Gb Seagate Barracuda SATA HD

Omega Catalyst 4.4 Drivers

I don't understand the anisotropic filtering settings for Doom, but I think it's disabled on my system (it doesn't look like it's enabled, but who knows). My drivers are set to app. control, so I'll assume that they are not enabled in these tests...

High Quality

1024x768, no AA 31.1 FPS
800 x600, no AA 37.9 FPS
800 x600, 2xAA 33.0 FPS
800 x600, 4xAA 26.9 FPS

Medium Quality

1024x768, no AA 32.9 FPS
800 x600, no AA 39.5 FPS
800 x600, 2x AA 35.6 FPS
800 x600, 4x AA 28.6 FPS

I'm going to reformat my computer, I think, and install the latest Catalyst drivers because I'm convinced that something is not right. Recently I uninstalled the Cat. 4.5's, because of the Thief-3-shadow-issues, and went with the 4.4s. I used Driver Cleaner 3, and everything seemed fine, but these numbers are a little bit perplexing... My CPU is somewhat slower than the 9800 Pro benchmarks that I've observed, but it shouldn't be that dramatic (around 50% faster than my results!!).

Switching the AGP aperture between 128 and 256 made no difference in performance on my system. 4xAA makes the game look a lot better, but the performance hit is <i>huge</i>.
August 4, 2004 11:42:04 PM

The reason why the second time the demo runs better is becuase of the paging. After the 1st run a lot of the game data is already in the RAM, hence during the 1nd run we get most HITS. 1st run results in MISSES making use of the HDD then.

Following are my results:

<b>Med Q</b>
640*480....55.4....no AA
640*480....41.4....2x AA
640*480....22.2....4x AA

<b>High Q</b>
800*600....37.4....no AA
800*600....27.3....2x AA
800*600....18.2....4x AA
640*480....20.3....4x AA

Dont plan to goto Ultra Q, as its useless. Also for me going above 2x might seem useless, but I ll try and post later. All above are the FPS from 2nd run.

<b>Sys (stock speeds):</b>
P4 3.2C
Asus p4c800-E

Also when u guys say shadows on/off..is there a setting to do that ? or its on/off depending on the quality.

Wow, there's a huge difference between 9800Pro, and 9600XT. Is it because of 256-bit memory? You only gain 4-5fps when you overclock the 9800Pro to XT hmm...

Well if you read what we said my ATI CP settings are a little higher, although those generally don't make a big performance difference. There are also other possible differences we're not accounting for. Also my 9800 Pro isn't "overclocked" to 9800 XT, it has a 9800 XT BIOS, and yeah, that does make a difference.

I'm also surprised at the 9600 XTs results... very disappointing. I guess I'd play at 800x600 Medium probably, no AA or anything, which would still look pretty good.

BTW, playing on the tv with surround sound in a dark room was an extremely awesome and fairly scary experience! I recommend trying it out! Also, it looks DAMN good, like an uber xbox on steroids, because of the bluring of TVs, and the fact that my computer well surpasses the power of an xbox... or 2.

Ok, I reformatted my computer and went through all the numbers.

Catalyst 4.9 Beta Drivers

High Quality

1024x768 no AA 31.3 FPS

800x600 no AA 39.8 FPS

Basically, there is no tangible increase in performance on my system after I reformatted and installed the 4.9 Betas. I don't understand how the average FPS could be almost <i>half</i> of what you guys are getting.. WTF?!

It runs really fast on high quality at 800x600, and it still looks awesome, but I'm really dissappointed. I wonder if I fried something in my graphics card, but I don't see how that would have happened. I'll have to do some research on this matter.
August 5, 2004 2:00:15 AM

Not to mention that my 9800 Pro is scoring a whopping 2 FPS more than a 9600XT?!?!
August 5, 2004 2:14:13 AM

I don't think u did fry sth if u did, u won't even be able to run the game?
and yeah..sth must be wrong, you are only getting 2 more FPS than a 9600XT, did you try to OC ur cpu to see?
Dould it be one of those 128bits Sapphire 9800 Pro?

You can edit the config file to disable AA and aniso if you feel like it just back it up incase.
You can try the Cache tweak worked for me. didnt bench really no time! tonight probly but runing smoother in 1180 than 1024 without the tweak...

Will post bench tonight but its silky smooth at medium one res over 1024 and eveything turned on in advanced...

You will get better results if you have the 9800pro256mb than the 9800pro128mb from OCing/Flashing to XT.

The whole game is only 1.5, so I doubt that labbbby. Really, the size of this game is quite impressive. Far Cry is 2.5, the HL2 beta I have is like 4, battlefield is almost 3, UT2k4 is over 5 freakin gigs... so I'm very impressed that they kept it to 1.5. Id knows what they're doing!

And somebody mentionned that demo are usually to hype up the game before or just after its released D3 doesnt need that hehe.

Ok, I fixed the problem, and now I'm getting

1024x768, High Detail, no AA,

<b>41.7 FPS</b>

I achieved this by turning off "V Sync"; I don't know why, but <i>it was dropping my FPS by 25%</i>, which was borderline unplayable. My Catalyst OpenGL settings for V Sync was "Default Off". Do you think that there was some sort of conflict between control panel settings and game settings? What does V Sync actually do, anyway?
August 5, 2004 9:23:37 PM

Using "default off" or "default on" is the equivalent of using Application preference. It will do what the application calls for.. if the application dosn't request anything, it will default to On, or Off, depending on what you have it set to.

V Sync is one of the most often confused concepts in the realm of graphics/video. It's almost a taboo subject for some... There are a few threads on here discussing V-Sync and its effects in great detail that you should read. Do a search.

Lol. I agree.

But I'm still not 100% satisfied with my Doom 3 performance. If you look at my first post you'll notice I pull 51 FPS. My friend JimmyDean has almost the EXACT same setup as I do, and he got 59 FPS on the 2nd run, with the same settings, and his core was only at 396 vs. my core of 412 (he gets artifacts in D3 at stock XT).

I'm not sure if it was a fluke or if we have some different settings I'm just not thinking of, but his system should not be doing better than mine. We're having a LAN soon and can play D3 side by side, at which time I will make all our settings EXACT and see how it goes. The only thing really different about our systems is that he now has 2 hard drives, and therefore might have a different page file setup, i.e. 2 page files, or a page file not on the windows drive or drive where Doom 3 is located... something like that. But that shouldn't really make a difference in FPS, maybe load times or something...

If you have a 9800PRO and he has an XT, I'll wager anything it's the 256MB. You've seen the performance yeilded on [H]'s benchmarks, right?

Ok ran some quick benchies while packing (posting second run results [first run were consistently ~2fps lower));

Run at 800x600 Medium, with the Xp2000+ running stock FSB.

Ran both stock and OC'd (500/333) benchmarks (no artifacting).

<b>Catalyst 4.8</b>;

<b>Stock</b>: 32.5fps / 66.1 seconds
<b>Oc'd</b>: 35.3 / 60.8 seconds


<b>Catalyst 4.9 (DoomDrivers)</b>;

<b>Stock</b>: 32.5fps / 66.1 seconds
<b>Oc'd</b>: 35.2 / 61.0 seconds

So, surprisingly enough for the R9600Pro there is little/no impact using the DoomDrivers. They must be geared towards other models or maybe AA/AF or something not exploited here.

No time to run performance mode checks.

Running Doom 3 on my TI-4600 card at 800x600 high detail. No driver tweaking not sure if AA is on or off, what ever is default.

I average about 30-32 FPS hitting a high of 40 FPS in some places, with multiple enemies on the screen (3+) drops to just above 20 FPS.

I guess not bad, for an old DirectX8 AGP4x card.

1024X768 High with V-Sync = 22.3fps
1024X768 High w/o V-Sync = 27.4fps
800X600 High with V-Sync = 30.4fps
800X600 High w/o V-Sync = 41.1fps

I guessed Vertical Sync is not an option.
I'll ask my boss to order stronger stuff...
Can't wait to see my system suffering...

I recommend to anyone who has V-Sync enabled to turn it off and see what kind of performance increase you get. I'm getting a 33% increase in performance by turning it off, and I'm not getting any "tearing" or weird choppiness. I was able to go back up to 1024x768 and I am still getting a high average framerate. At this point I'm happy with the setup.

Now I need to work on getting rid of this annoying "click" sound that the game keeps generating, it happens constantly when I'm moving around; people with Audigy soundcards are reporting this problem, although my system uses Soundstorm. None of this matters anyway because the Doom sound engine uses the CPU and not the sound card, although the sound is still output via the sound card. This may be some sort of DirectSound conflict, but I gotta fix it soon because it's really irritating.
