Performance in RPG
Three different cards on Nvidia G200/G200b lines up once after another according with their die configuration and clock frequencies, so the top position was naturally occupied by EVGA solution. Although it fell far behind Radeon HD 4850 X2 in average speed in 2560х1600, EVGA GeForce GTX 285 SSC demonstrated comparable minimal performance. Together with its other great consumer advantages, this makes EVGA GeForce GTX 285 SSC an even better choice for Fallout 3 fans with appropriate monitors. However, you may also want to check out ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB, at least if it is equipped with a quieter cooling system than the reference.
The frame rate grows up from the GeForce GTX 280 through GeForce GTX 285 and EVGA GeForce GTX 285 SSC almost linearly. As a result, the latter is competitive to the Radeon HD 4850 X2 in performance but superior to it in other consumer qualities such as noisiness. The ATI solution only wins at 2560x1600, but this has no practical value since every tested graphics card is too slow in this mode.
