It has been a traditional assumption that the monitor and system case should be priced comparably. However, the arrival of expensive processors and graphics accelerators made this statement very doubtful. Today we are going to check how well 300-dollar graphics cards can perform in video games in 2560x1600 resolution. We will test Force 3D Radeon HD 4870 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 260.
Call of Juarez
Call of Juarez does not support 2560x1600 resolution, so we limited our tests to 1920x1200.
The DirectX 10 version of the game runs fast on Radeon HD cards. Here, the Radeon HD 4870 leaves the opponent behind but, for unclear reasons, has a slightly lower bottom speed.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
A frame rate of 35fps is not really high for a first-person shooter but that’s what you are going to get from a GeForce GTX 260 or Radeon HD 4870 in this game.
It’s curious the GTX 260 with 896 megabytes of onboard memory can’t beat the 4870 model that has only 512 megabytes.
