Performance in RPG
We’ve got a different picture here. The increased frequencies don’t help the ECS card at 1600x1200 and its minimum speed bottom out below comfortable level. The GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is also close to the dangerous level, though. On the other hand, it is 17% ahead of the ECS N8800GT-512MX DT at 1280x1024, giving the gamer more confidence for the most complex scenes.
The current version of the game doesn’t support FSAA, so we performed the test with anisotropic filtering only.
There is less than 10% of difference between the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB and the ECS N8800GT-512MX DT in any mode. Both cards deliver comfortable performance at resolutions up to 1920x1200 inclusive.
