Inno3D GeForce 8500 GT and 8600 GT Comparison - Page 5 of 7

F.E.A.R. PERFORMANCE TEST RESULTS
Unlike the Source engine games where the only differences between settings was the level of antialiasing, F.E.A.R.'s engine adjusts almost every aspect of the game engine. Both cards were tested using the in-game Medium, High and Maximum settings at 1600x1200, 1920x1200 and 2560x1600.
Once again, the 8600 GT is able to smoke through the benchmarks until maximum engine settings at 2560x1600. F.E.A.R. definitely gave the 8500 GT a run for its money with performance never breaking out of the mid-20s in terms of average frames per second. Double-digit framerate at 2560x1600 with medium and high settings was quite surprising and shows that for all the diminished power behind the 8500 GT it has a fighter's spirit.
