Fallout 3 is based on the same engine used by The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and it is a DirectX 9.0c (Shader 3.0) game. We configured the game with “low” image quality settings at 1440×900. To measure performance, we used the FRAPS utility running an outdoor scene at God mode, running through enemy fire, triggering post processing effects, and ending with a big explosion in front of Dupont Circle. The results below are in frames per second (FPS).
Once again the on-board video produced by the GeForce 7025 chipset achieved a very low performance – the on-board video produced by the AMD 880G chipset was 288% faster, and the low-end Radeon HD 3450 was 254% faster.
