Performance in Strategies
We use DirectX 11 mode for graphics cards that support it.
The GeForce GTX 480 SLI has a low bottom speed at high resolutions in this game, just like the rest of SLI tandems. The average frame rate grows up in the multi-GPU mode but gameplay becomes less comfortable, the game becoming less responsive to user actions, than with the single GeForce GTX 480. Hopefully, this will be corrected by the next version of Nvidia’s driver.
World in Conflict: Soviet Assault
Like in the previous tests, the GeForce GTX 480 SLI is faster than the GeForce GTX 470 SLI but the latter subsystem costs the same money as the single Radeon HD 5970 whereas the former, $1000 and more. And there are no practical benefits from the more expensive solution save for the higher numbers in the benchmark.
