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.

Across the board we continue to see good gains with Clear Sky; this game has always favored the ATI offerings and the HD 4890 shows nothing different.

Optimum Setup- While the game does favor ATI cards it's still not great at giving us high FPS, at 1680 x 1050 detail does need to be dropped to medium to get that 30 FPS minimum.
