Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Devil May Cry 4
The performance delta between three GeForce GTS 250 models that differ only by the amount of onboard graphics memory is minimal and doesn’t exceed the measuring error allowed for our benchmarking methods. Overclocking squeezes additional 9-12% out of Gainward card, but even without it the performance is high enough for comfortable gaming. As usual, overclocking doesn’t make a lot of practical sense, which, however, is true not only for Devil May Cry 4 and GeForce GTS 250.
Prince of Persia
Today’s gaming consoles have much less onboard video memory than contemporary PC graphics cards. Therefore, all multi-platform projects are being optimized primarily for console technical specifications. As a result, most of these games have very modest requirements to the video memory subsystem of the graphics cards, and Prince of Persia is one of them. The only thing we managed to accomplish by overclocking our Gainward GTS 250 2048MB was to raise its minimum performance to an acceptable level in 1680x1050 resolution.
