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

Stalker

'Stalker' - next to Duke Nukem Forever the epitome of waiting. After a long time, the Ukrainian first-person shooter still has it on the shelvesmanaged and knows how to please despite the seemingly eternal development time. The game not only scores points in terms of play with some nice ideas, the atmosphere can also be seen or felt. In addition, the graphics engine, which uses a 'deffered shadowing' algorithm, is well done. Above all, the game convinces with chic weather effects and can have detailed textures. Shader Model 3.0 effects are used, as well as high-quality FP16 HDR rendering, which ensures a realistic color spectrum. Another highlight are the numerous high-quality light and shadow effects that have not yet been seen in this form. This is the advantage of deffered shadowing, as the light and shadow calculations can be carried out very quickly. A major disadvantage, however, is that Direct3D 9 accelerators cannot perform multi-sampling anti-aliasing as a result. Not only does this require a D3D10 graphics card, the game must also be equipped with the new API.
