Tomb Raider: Legend
Tomb Raider: Legend produces a picture that is quite the opposite of the previous test. The GeForce 8800 GTX makes a brilliant display of its tremendous strength, humiliating its opponents and allowing to use 4x FSAA even in the resolution of 1920x1200 pixels. The Next Generation Content option of this game speaks for itself. Indeed, only new-generation GPUs can run the game in this max-quality mode at a sufficiently high speed.
The GeForce 8800 GTX even makes it possible to enable 8x MSAA in this game, except for extreme resolutions like 1920x1200 or 2560x1600.
Considering that third-person shooters are quite playable if you’ve got an average frame rate of 45-50fps, the new graphics card is capable of running this game at a comfortable speed even with enabled 16xQ CSAA. And you only need a single $599 card for that, not a multi-GPU tandem costing over $1000. Nvidia’s new flagship graphics card is indeed amazing!
