Performance in RPG
The Radeon HD 4870 1GB is beyond competition but the Gainward HD 4850 1024MB GS is quite fast in every display mode, too. Our additional overclocking adds 10% more to the average frame rate at a resolution of 1920x1200 but this has little effect on the gameplay. The speed is anyway so high that you can’t spot that addition with a naked eye. The Gainward card will suit nicely for playing Fallout 3.
The only card that can deliver an acceptable speed is the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 whereas the other cards have too low bottom speeds. Overclocking has no effect on the results of the Gainward HD 4850 1024MB GS.
