Performance in First-Person 3D Shooters
This game doesn’t support display resolutions of 16:10 format, so we use a resolution of 1920x1440 pixels (4:3 format) instead of 1920x1200 for it.
The overclocking gain is only perceptible at 1920x1200 where it amounts to 8%. The minimum speed has increased somewhat as well, but this doesn’t have any practical value for this game. You just won’t notice it.
BioShock doesn’t support FSAA when running in Windows Vista’s DirectX 10 environment. That’s why we benchmarked the cards without FSAA.
The overclocked Albatron 8800GTS-512X performs faster by 11% even at 1280x1024. The overclocking gain increases steadily to 14% and then to 17% as the display resolution grows up. This has little practical worth, however, except that the extra reserve of speed may be useful at 1920x1200.
