Performance in First-Person 3D Shooters
Call of Duty: World at War
Starting from version 1.3 we use the game’s integrated benchmarking options together with a custom demo record. Unfortunately, this method does not report the bottom frame rate.
The GeForce GTX 275 has a somewhat cut-down configuration in comparison with the GeForce GTX 285, but this has almost no effect on its performance. The two cards differ but little at 1280x1024 and do not differ at all at the higher resolutions, save for the extreme 2560x1600 mode. When overclocked, the BFG card is as fast as the Radeon HD 4890 and even outperforms the latter at 2560x1600. Is the GeForce GTX 275 going to be the killer of GeForce GTX 285? Let’s check out the other tests before answering this question.
Well, the cut-down memory subsystem and fewer RBEs of the new GeForce affect its performance more in Crysis. There is a big difference in terms of bottom speed even at 1280x1024 – the most important resolution for this demanding game. It is only through overclocking that the difference can be eliminated. Theoretically, the GeForce GTX 275 seems to lack graphics memory as you can see by comparing its results with those of the 1GB cards, but the frame rates are too low anyway.
