FEAR MP Benchmark Help
I'm thinking about upgrading my system and was wondering if I could get some of you to help me with some FEAR MP Benchmarks so I can see what a new system would do for me.

What I'm interested in is benchmarks for a Single 7800GTX on an AMD 4000+ and a Pentium 4 3.4 GIG (650 or 550), of course a 3.6 GIG is fine too. In fact any would be appreciated. I know there was another FEAR Benchmark thread but I'll put my settings in this one so you can run them the same way so I can compare directly to how I usually play.

I tend to play without AA and low levels of Anisotropic Filtering to keep the FPS up in demanding games and FEAR is certainly one of those, or at least it is on my system. So if anyone is interesting in helping me out I'd really appreciate it, Thanks in Advance.

Here's my system specs and my settings and results.

Pentium 4 Northwood 3.4 GIG Processor
ASUS P4C800-E Motherboard
eVGA 6800GT
2 GIG Kingston ValueRAM (4x512)
Audigy 1 Sound Board
Nothing is overclocked

Thinking about two different systems.

Intel P4 650 3.4 GIG, ASUS P5GD1, 7800GTX.


AMD 4000+, ASUS A8N-SLI Premium, 7800GTX.

Here's the way I've been playing FEAR.

Re: FEAR MP Benchmark Help
I suggest you wait for the retail game benchmark. the MP demo wasnet very stable nor optimized for benching IMO.

Re: FEAR MP Benchmark Help

Thanks for your time. It's good to see what a 6800Ultra will do. Both of our systems are pretty close too. Thanks for running the benchmark four times but I didn't want to make anyone think they needed to do that I just put all four scores to show how close they were.


I know what you mean, with the retail game so close it's sure going to be interesting to see what the numbers do. But the last MP demo was pretty recent so they may not change that much. But I plan to buy the game the day it ships to find out :D
