PREY is one of the newest games to be added to our benchmark line-up. It is based off the Doom 3 engine and offers stunning graphics passing what we've seen in Quake 4 and does put quite a lot of strain on our test systems.

 

 

GeForce 8600GTS really seems to take a bit of a hit when compared to the GeForce 7900GS in PREY, it sits a bit back at the lower resolution and further back again when we start increasing it.

 

We get an excellent gain with the XXX over the reference speeds but at this stage you can begin to tell we are really dealing with a mid-range card and it's not to be confused with a high-end product.
