F.E.A.R. is ruled by the GeForce 7900 GT in all disciplines. The Radeon X1900 GT cards are 10% behind the XFX GeForce 7900 GT and that percentage increases to a 43% advantage as the resolution goes to 2560x1600. At that point the game is still playable on the XFX card and outside the 30fps minimum range for smooth gaming. When antialiasing and anisotropic filtering are enabled the percentage gap doubles from 22% at 1024x768 to 128% faster at 2560x1600, even though it is not playable at that resolution on any of the cards. The full pipeline architecture proves to be necessary in F.E.A.R.
