Performance in Strategies
We use DirectX 11 mode for graphics cards that support it.
We can see no performance benefits with the new driver here. The GeForce GTX 465 is still behind the Radeon HD 5850 at every resolution. Overclocking helps eliminate this difference at resolutions up to 1920x1080 and enjoy a more comfortable gameplay at 1600x900 due to the higher bottom speed. The new card cannot match the top-end solutions but its 20-23 fps is better than the AMD cards’ 10-11 fps.
World in Conflict: Soviet Assault
The GeForce GTX 465 runs this game fast but not fast enough to justify its own price because it is lagging behind the Radeon HD 5850 and GeForce GTX 275. It also slows down more than its opponents at the higher resolutions. However, it delivers a playable frame rate in the Full HD mode, which is important since the resolution of 1920x1080 has become a de facto standard for a serious gaming platform. Overclocking does not improve the performance of the GeForce GTX 465 much in this game.
