Benchmark Results: Fallout 3

Mainstream Graphics Card Roundup
By

This game mixes the role-playing and 3D first-person shooter (FPS) genres and uses an improved version of the Oblivion graphics engine. Fallout 3 supports HDR rendering using Shader Model 3.0. The graphics engine renders the game world fluidly and interior game spaces present no challenge to reasonably-modern GPUs.

For high-end tests we set graphics quality to Very High (the maximum possible setting). The highest setting for AA is 8x filtering. We ran a sequence at the Tenpenny Tower to collect our Fraps measurements. This scene takes place outdoors, in a space with a distant horizon and many objects and ruins in the visible landscape.
