Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Street Fighter IV
The reduced frequencies of the GT215 show up in Street Fighter IV. The reference GeForce GT 240 is slower than the GeForce 9600 GT and the Gainward/Palit version falls behind at 1920x1200, too. The GT215-based solutions are always inferior to the Radeon HD 4700, especially at high resolutions, but the new card should be given credit for delivering a comfortable frame rate even at 1920x1200.
Resident Evil 5
The Radeon HD 4770 boasts a higher bottom speed than the GeForce GT 240 at 1920x1200 but Nvidia’s entry-level gaming card looks just as well as its opponent at the lower resolutions. The improved architecture gives the GT215-based solutions an edge against the GeForce 9600 GT, which is especially conspicuous with the pre-overclocked GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 variants.
