Performance in RPG
Mass Effect 2
We enforced full-screen antialiasing using the method described in our special Mass Effect 2 Review.
The new driver does not make the GeForce GTX 465 any faster in this game. The changes, if any, are too small to affect the standings: the new card is still ahead of the Radeon HD 5850 at 1600x900 and is equal to it at 1920x1080 but falls behind at 2560x1600. The new model in the GeForce GTX 400 series has a good bottom speed except at the highest resolution. When overclocked, it performs even better, overtaking the GeForce GTX 470 at the two lowest resolutions. That’s good, yet not good enough because the Radeon HD 5850 allows playing at 2560x1600 whereas the GeForce GTX 465 does not.
