Performance in First-Person 3D Shooters
Online gamers should definitely consider the Foxconn 8800 GTX. This card beats the GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB in high resolutions with an advantage of 15fps. An interesting fact, the speed of today’s fastest graphics card has slowed down relative to the older driver.
Unfortunately, graphics cards from the previous generation do not suit for monitors that support resolutions higher than 1280x1024. Although the Radeon X1950 XTX and GeForce 7950 GX2 deliver an average of 50fps, their reserve of speed is too low for graphically complex scenes.
Call of Juarez
One of the newest titles on our test program, Call of Juarez does not support HDR and FSAA simultaneously. The game is very heavy for the computer’s graphics subsystem anyway.
The GeForce 8800 GTX is the only graphics card to deliver a comfortable frame rate here. It is followed by the GeForce 7950 GX2, a previous-generation dual-chip solution from Nvidia. Note that even on such powerful graphics cards you have to lower the graphics quality settings to have a normal speed in high display resolutions.
