Tomb Raider Legend
We will introduce a new test system with this review, a natural shift that will increase the overall system performance significantly. This is a great advantage as we eliminate eventual bottlenecks that could compromise the results from the game tests.
We also have a few new games; Oblivion and Tomb Raider: Legend, which both are graphically very impressive. Tomb Raider: Legend with "Next Gen" activated may very well be the most demanding game of today. In part 2 we might be able to include Prey which is based on the same engine as Doom 3 and Quake 4.
In our tests we will use both high resolutions and high image quality settings, simply because the high-end graphics cards we're looking at today are suppose to be used like this.
We start with Quake 4.
