S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, is the stand-alone prequel for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, a first-person shooter computer game by Ukrainian developer GSC Game World.[3] The game consists of a roughly 50/50 mix of new areas and old, remodeled areas from the previous game. The X-ray graphics engine has been updated to version 1.5 and includes DirectX 10 support (later patch 1.5.06 included DirectX 10.1). Additionally, the AI received an overhaul to accommodate the new faction wars feature.

In the minimum department we see both cards perform the same. At the lower and higher resolution performance is slightly up. At 1920 x 1200, though, performance takes quite a big hit.

 

In the average department we see the NVIDIA drivers again offer nothing to slightly less performance, while the ATI ones manage to offer us more performance at all resolutions.
