Performance in RPGs
Fallout: New Vegas
Like the previous games in the Fallout 3 series, New Vegas has modest system requirements. At the highest graphics quality settings with 4x MSAA it runs fast even on the Radeon HD 6870, the more advanced solutions differing but slightly from that card even at 2560x1600. In fact, monsters like the GeForce GTX 580 just can't show their full potential in this game.
Mass Effect 2
We enforced full-screen antialiasing using the method described in our special Mass Effect 2 review.
The innovations introduced in the GeForce TX 580 are enough to make it competitive to the Radeon HD 5970 at every resolution including 2560x1600. Considering its lower price and noise level, Nvidia's solution seems to be a better choice, just like in the majority of other tests.
