Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.

The GeForce GTX 480 beats both the Radeon HD 5870 and the dual-processor Radeon HD 5970 in this flight simulator. In the high-quality mode the GTX 480 is twice as fast as the GTX 285! 

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

Like BattleForge and Stormrise, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood runs better on AMD's solutions. However, this does not prevent the GeForce GTX 480 from beating the Radeon HD 5870. It must be noted that Call of Juarez is not a resource-consuming application. A single GeForce GTX 285 or a Radeon HD 4870/HD 5770 would suffice for playing this game at the highest resolution. 

Wolfenstein MP

It is quite a surprise to see AMD's cards win in Wolfenstein because Nvidia's OpenGL support used to be superior. But as you can see, the GeForce GTX 480 cannot match the Radeon HD 5870 in this game. 

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Nvidia's new product has a mighty weapon in Batman: Arkham Asylum in the form of hardware support for PhysX effects. For AMD's graphics cards to perform successfully in this game, you have to either install a GeForce as a second graphics card or turn off those PhysX effects altogether. In the latter case the game's visuals degenerate greatly, but the former solution is costlier and more troublesome as you have to make the Catalyst and GeForce drivers run together on a single computer. We must note that the GeForce GTX 480 is just brilliant in Batman: Arkham Asylum, outperforming the dual-processor GeForce GTX 295.
