Judging by TweakTown’s analysis of the demo, if you want to push the resolution to 1280 x 1024 or higher, you’re going to need more grunt than what the mid-range GeForce 8600 and Radeon 2600 can offer.

It’s all good news for GeForce 8800 and Radeon 2900 owners, with these cards scoring in the 30-40fps range with all settings on high, and ~60fps on medium detail. Not a bad showing from the 8800, when you consider the chip is a year old.

Note that these benchmarks were performed on a system with a quad-core CPU, so you might be hard pressed to replicate the results on a dual-core.

  • Yah with my quad core + 2900 it looks fine. And by fine i mean FINE. Although as soon as i ramp settings up to Very High, we enter chunksville.

    I’ll be waiting for some new ati drivers.

    Oh yeah, and turning off motion blur is a godsend. I like it in TF2, it’s done well, but in this demo, it’s too much. Kinda screws with your eyes.

  • Do you think I’d be able to max it on my Radeon 9550? xD Ahhhhh, nuts… I think I should start saving for a new computer… although I’m like 99.9% that it’ll come to consoles in one way or another.
