Benchmark Results: S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat

System Builder Marathon, March 2010: System Value Compared

The latest S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Call of Pripyat benchmark presents significant challenges to many single-GPU systems, but all of ours have CrossFire. With previous-generation 512MB cards, will the $750 machine survive?

High-quality presets without AA are little challenge to the $750 PC at its display panel limits, but stepping up to ultra-quality and 8x AA puts it out of the running. With minimal frame rates far lower than the averages seen here, even the big machines have trouble exceeding 1080p at the higher specifications.
