Doom 3 is the latest game to hit our test lab and is one of the most intensive games to date. Using the "Demo1" file included with the game we are able to give a realistic rating on what kind of FPS you will be achieving.

Some folks love Doom and others prefer HalfLife, but no matter your personal choices there is little argument that Doom 3 is one of the most graphically intensive games to hit the streets to date.

In keeping with the trend we've seen so far, the X850 shows an improvement over the X800 board.
