Doom 3 is the latest game to hit our test lab and is one of the most intensive games to dates. With our own custom time demo we are able to give a realistic rating on what kind of FPS you will be achieving.

 

For more information on benchmarking Doom 3 we recommend you check out our extensive article regarding it here.

 

 

 

While Doom 3 is well and truly designed to make use of nVidia's GeForce 6 series you can see that at the lower resolution the X800XL and X850XT handle the game just fine.

 

Moving to the higher resolution you do see it change around a little with the 6600GT being able to even sneak ahead of the X800XL.
