ATi Radeon HD 3850 in the test: Another price-performance hit?

Rainbow Six Vegas

The 'Rainbow Six' series already includes several titles and is one of the largest PC game series worldwide. The latest creation goes by the simple name'Vegas', but it already shows where the special unit is deployed this time. And that the city of Vegas can be counted among the most colorful cities of all, very few doubt. The graphics engine from Vegas is correspondingly colorful, but also very detailed, and at the same time is not just any, but a very well-known one: The Unreal Engine 3, which will also be used in 'Unreal Tournament 3' this year. Although the version in Vegas lags a bit behind that in UT3, the graphics are convincing. A lot of details are shown that could not be discovered in any game until now. The many bright colors and the detailed animations round off the result. But the Unreal Engine 3 has a big disadvantage: 'Deferred Shading' (the Unreal Engine 3 itself is not a pure deffered renderer, only the shadow part has a special algorithm) is used, although some with a brisk shadow and light calculation Offers advantages, but prevents anti-aliasing under the Direct3D 9 API. Deferred shading and anti-aliasing are only possible with Direct3D 10. Since the anisotropic filter has no influence on the speed in our selected benchmark scene, we leave it out of the diagram.
