Macologist/Barefeats Test Doom 3 with nVIDIA 6800 Ultra
12:27 PM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story
Macologist and Barefeats.com have collaborated to update their impressions of Doom 3 with the nVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra.
Macologist has updated its review of the game with benchmarks of the game in action on the NVIDIA card. Previously the game was tested with an ATI Radeon 9600XT and a nVIDIA 5200 Ultra. Increased framerates compared to these cards were gained with the addition of the 6800. However, the G5 on which the 6800 was tested was a top end 2.5GHz compared to a 2GHz model for the 9600XT and a single 1.8GHz model for the 5200 Ultra.
Barefeats.com updated its popular Mac versus PC gaming page with the addition of the 6800 Ultra benchmarks. This test was a fairer comparison since an ATI Radeon X800 XT was tested on the same 2.5GHz G5 as the nVIDIA 6800 Ultra. Very similar framerates on the two systems were achieved, with only 1fps difference in both Doom 3 tests. Both graphics cards on the Mac lag by a large margin compared to performance on PC systems tested.
