Simulator 2004 was tested
with high settings enabled across its four display option
panels, with ground scenery cast shadows enabled. Trilinear
filtering was also enabled and the max texture size slider
bar placed in its middle. Sound was set to low. SimHQ's test
demo consists of a short dusk flight over Hong Kong city.
enough, it's a Microsoft title that displayed the first real
performance hit while running on the new OS. MS' Flight Sim
2004 dropped over 20% at the lower resolutions, though the
difference was reduced to only slightly over 5% at 1600x1200.
Fighters, patched to version
3.04, was tested in OpenGL with all video options set to medium
(normal for Objects detail) using the in-game F4F vs. G4M
XP Pro x64 bounced back with Pacific Fighters, again displaying
only a small performance gap with the 32-bit version. Players
wouldn't know which OS they were using if playing with the
test settings configured on their systems.
