Far Cry 2
Nvidia's new card performs confidently in Far Cry 2 where it is always ahead of the Radeon HD 5870 and even challenges the Radeon HD 5970 in the highest-quality mode with FSAA enabled.
Call of Duty 5: World at War
Call of Duty 5: World at War has modest system requirements and runs at a playable speed on any of the tested cards even at 2560x1600 with 8x MSAA. The GeForce GTX 480 and the Radeon HD 5870 are roughly comparable in this game.
BattleForge: Lost Souls
Despite the fact that BattleForge: Lost Souls is a Radeon-optimized application, Nvidia's GF100-based graphics card is only inferior to the Radeon HD 5870 in the FSAA-less mode. When full-screen antialiasing is turned on, the GeForce GTX 480 goes ahead.
The GeForce series cards have no chance in this game, which is optimized for the Radeon architecture, too.
