Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Devil May Cry 4
The pair of GeForce GTS 250 cards working in SLI mode delivers fantastic performance, leaving its opponents behind at resolutions up to 1920x1200 inclusive, yet we guess such a high speed is just redundant. Even the single GeForce GTS 250 can yield a playable frame rate at these resolutions. The pre-overclocked version from EVGA is especially good but the silent version from Gigabyte is quite good for this game, too.

The efficiency of Nvidia SLI technology nears its theoretical maximum here. You even get a performance growth of over 100% at 1920x1200 when switching from one GeForce GTS 250 to two such cards. Here, this speed has a practical value as it makes the resolution of 1920x1200 available for play. You can’t play the game comfortably in this mode on the single GeForce 9800 GTX+, GTS 250, Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon HD 4870. On the other hand, the GeForce GTX 285 copes with the job just as well and does not require a SLI-compatible mainboard. It is only 6-8% slower than the GeForce GTS 250 SLI, which makes no difference for gamers.
