Resident Evil 5
The GeForce 480 leaves no chance to its opponent in Resident Evil 5, either. Moreover, the new GF100-based card can successfully compete with the dual-processor GeForce GTX 295 and Radeon HD 5970.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
I have to remind you that the GeForce GTX 285 and GTX 295 cards do not support DirectX 11. Therefore I benchmarked the GeForce GTX 480 in DirectX 10 mode in order to make a correct comparison.
The GeForce GTX 480 cannot impress us with its performance in this game. It is not much faster than the GTX 285 and is no better than the GTX 295. The new card is far from brilliant in the DirectX 11 mode, too:
The Radeon HD 5870 and GeForce GTX 480 cannot get a decisive win in Borderlands. The Nvidia card is faster in the FSAA-less mode whereas the Radeon is ahead at 1920x1080 when we turn on 8x MSAA.
Left 4 Dead 2
If you are keen on wiping out thousands of zombies in Left 4 Dead 2, you may want to choose an AMD card since they are faster than Nvidia's solutions. On the other hand, the game's system requirements are not high and it can run smoothly on any of the tested cards.
