13. Colin McRae 05
13 - Colin McRae 05
For all you racing fans out there, this test is for you and will represent the Racing game category in our benchmarks.
From the graphics point of view the first thing you’ll notice in the game is the excellent amount of detail on your racing car. High resolution textures on the car and lighting make it quite impressive. All the eye candy, such as the sun reflection in the virtual camera are still the same as with the older CM versions but motion blur has been added when your car hits something hard, which will happen quite often if you're new to the racing simulation world.
To measure the performance with the game, we used fraps to get the average fps of the whole 8th stage of UK which is actually the only stage you get to play on the demo.
As you can see, the Asus AX600XT offers excellent performance. As long as your CPU can handle it, you can even play the game under 1600x1200 without any problems from your graphics card.
1024x768, 4x Anti-Aliasing and 8x anisotropic filtering is once again the suggested setting to enjoy this game. With an average of 35fps, it's surely the perfect balance between quality and performance.
