Benchmarks: Half Life 2, Prey
Half Life 2 puts the GeForce 8800 GTX back well out in front of the Radeon X1950XTX at the maximum tested resolutions. For example, at 2560x1600 the 8800 GTX was 97% faster than the Radeon X1950XTX. However, at 1600x1200 the 8800 GTX was just 33% faster, meaning you will need to run at resolutions greater than 1600x1200 to make full use of the 8800 GTX!
Prey performance is pretty much the opposite of what we have seen so far. Rather than pull away at the higher resolutions, the GeForce 8800 GTX gets a quick lead over the Radeon X1950XTX at 1024x768 and 1280x1024. However, by the time the maximum tested resolutions are reached, the 8800 GTX is only slightly faster than the X1950XTX.
