You know, its been a decade since the last Fallout release, and a lot has happened since then. Fallout 3 takes place roughly two-hundred years after a nuclear war devastated the planet. While the series originally started in Southern California, this time around youll find yourself in a post-apocalyptic Washington D.C., better known as the Capital Wasteland. You are a resident of Vault 101, one of a series of fallout vaults built to protect its inhabitants from the harsh conditions in the wasteland. As the story goes, in Vault 101, nobody enters - and nobody leaves. Raised as a child in the vault, the game begins with you as a young lad learning to take your first steps and continues as you grow older (this portion of the game is used as both a training mission and to build an affinity with your character). It isnt until you wake up one day to find the vault in chaos - your father has somehow left and its up to you to follow him into the wasteland - where the story really begins.
Fallout 3 is an immersive, graphically stunning title with that awesome movie feel. Easily one of the best games of 2008, a must buy Gurus... a must buy.
Detail level: Ultra
Fallout 3 then. Initially NVIDIA would have had a pretty good advantage here, but the new Catalyst 8.12 drivers boosted overall X2 performance pretty significantly. As a result the performance is roughly equal.
ATI is really strong in this title, especially with 8xAF enabled you can see it crawl upwards in the higher resolutions.
Now here we have the same Ultra image quality settings again, with 8x AA enabled. If we focus at 1920x1200 we see some pretty good scaling among the different brands. it's all relative though.
In a Multi-GPU we stumble again into a CPU bottleneck, until we reach 2560x1600 though. Look at 3-way SLI rocket launching itself.
