Results - F.E.A.R (DirectX 9 Benchmark)

F.E.A.R was another graphically intensive game that revealed the weakness of the GeForce 8600 GTS. With anti-aliasing enabled, all the cards including the overclocked ones failed to achieve 30 frames per second at 1600 x 1200. Generally, overclocking gave the GeForce 8600 GTS a slight boost of a few frames. Considering that at some resolutions and settings, the frame rates weren't too impressive, the extra frames may come in handy. The ASUS EN8600GTS TOP was again the fastest, though at times, its advantage was merely a single frame over the competition.
