Benchmark Results: Fallout 3
Since Metro 2033 doesn’t work, let’s try a slightly older title with a similar post-apocalyptic theme: Fallout 3.
At low settings this game is playable, and as an RPG that relies more on stats and gear than pure action, you might even want to kick the graphical settings up a notch on the E-350. The D525/Ion 2 is playable, but not as smooth, and there’s less wiggle room for tweaking the settings. The game looks good, but the loss of visual fidelity versus the maximum setting is quite noticeable.
Fallout 3 is playable on the E-350 at 720p and on the verge of playable on the D525/Ion 2 at this resolution.
It's Pointless To Compare Them...
Urban Terror (my favorite one), Open Arena, Alien Arena? Or at least Quake live?
Cause it's ridiculous to test all those latest shooters on such low end machines...
Good review; was kinda wishing for the HL2:LC or some previous-gen UT titles though. :)
But seriously, the ION seems to be bottlenecked by the cpu.
