Benchmarks: The Performance Hit
With 3D Vision enabled your computer is technically doing twice the amount of work than what it would do with 3D Vision disabled. Apart from the huge amounts of memory that I have which make programs like Photoshop a whole lot more pleasurable to use, there isn't anything that is too stand out on my main PC.
Since I really don't have heaps of time for games, my PC doesn't carry anything that any performance gamer probably doesn't already have. So with my i7 920 clocked at its default 2.67 GHz speed and the GTX 285 that has served me well the past 12 months, let's have a look at how performance was in a few of our games that have built in benchmarks.
Of course, all our benchmarks will be ran at 1680 x 1050 only and we'll use the same in-game settings as we used in our games when using 3D Vision which we thought where comfortable.
- Far Cry 2
- Resident Evil 5
We can see under both games there's a clear drop in FPS. The good news is that really, once we started playing the games with 3D Vision, we didn't really notice any noticeable slow down. The good news is there's plenty of ways to gain some extra FPS if need be; overclock your CPU or video card, drop in game detail or upgrade to a faster video card, albeit another option would be a GTX 295 and with new NVIDIA models coming next year, we wouldn't recommend it.
