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.

We see that Clear Sky performance is all over the place. While faster than the GTS 250 by a good chunk, for the most part the overall results aren't anything magnificent.

 

Optimum Setup- Poor coding in Clear Sky does nothing for NVIDIA cards. You're going to be dropping resolution and detail to get a smooth experience at 1680 x 1050.
