Man games and applications were used in order to measure the performance (FPS) of each card.

  • 3D Mark 05

For all the tests we used the default settings for 3DMark05 as following:

  • 3D Mark 06

Again we left all settings to default:

- DirectX10 Settings

  • 3DMark Vantage

We used the three built- in benchmarks to test the performance of each graphics card. We measured the performances at various resolutions using the "Performance" and up to the "Extreme" settings.

  • Company Of Heroes

We used the built in benchmark with all the details maxed out.

  • Crysis WarHead

We used the hocbench Crysis benchmark tool at the resolutions of 1280x1024, 1680x1050 and finally 1920x1200. We run the benchmark software with "High" and "Very High" details enabled in order to identify the optimum settings for a decent game play.

  • Far Cry 2

We used the built-in benchmarking utility and maxed out all visual details, under both DX9/DX10 and settings up to 16x AA/16x AF.
