Performance in Simulators
Race Driver: GRID
The ordinary GeForce GTX 285 cannot beat the Radeon HD 4850 X2 although maintains a high frame rate at every resolution, including 2560x1600. The pre-overclocked version from EVGA is close to ATI’s dual-chip monster at two out of the four tested resolutions. It also delivers high performance at the other two resolutions, so we wouldn’t count this in as a loss, especially as the GTX 285 has much lower power consumption and heat dissipation.
X³: Terran Conflict
The GeForce GTX 285 is the first single-chip graphics card from Nvidia to ensure a playable bottom speed at resolutions higher than 1280x1024. This is very good considering the preferences of this game’s engine. Well, the Radeon HD 4850 X2 is indeed the best, even though very hot, choice for this game.
