Performance in Real-Time Strategy

Red Alert 3

The game has a built-in frame rate limiter set at 30fps.

Nvidia’s card are unacceptably slow in Red Alert 3 if you enable 4x FSAA. Hopefully, this problem will be corrected with the next driver update. Anyway, the overclocked card from EVGA behaves just like in the previous tests.

Spore

The game has an integrated frame rate limiter set at 30fps. It doesn’t support FSAA.

This test does not give us useful information. All the cards hit the frame rate limit. We will replace this test with a more informative one in our future reviews.

World in Conflict

Our overclocking of the EVGA card produces an impressive result: this card beats the Radeon HD 4850 X2 at 1680x1050. Besides ATI’s dual-core solution, it is the only card to provide a comfortable speed at 1920x1200. The largest gap from the GeForce GTX 280 amounts to 14%, which is a superb result considering the difference in the number of subunits as well as in the performance and amount of graphics memory.
