You do not come across really unique graphics cards very often, especially in the high-performance segment. Although we have to admit that the situation starts changing lately. Today we are going to introduce to you a truly unique solution like that from Gainward. Its main distinguishing feature is 1GB of onboard video memory.
F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate
Like Battlefield 2142, this game does not support resolutions of 16:10 format. So, we use 1920x1440 (4:3 format) instead of 1920x1200 in this test.
The difference between the Gainward card and the reference card from Nvidia is explained by the difference in their clock rates in this test. The performance gain is small at 8-10%.
Half-Life 2: Episode Two
It’s the same as in the previous test: the Gainward card is ahead of the reference one but this has nothing to do with its 1GB of memory. Anyway, the additional reserve of speed is going to be valuable, especially if you want to play at 1920x1200.
