Performance in Simulators
Colin McRae: Dirt 2
We enable the DirectX 11 mode for graphics cards that support it.
The GeForce GTX 460 SLI performs superbly, being only inferior to the more advanced tandem based on two GeForce GTX 470s. Its performance equals that of the Radeon HD 5970 at 2560x1600, but the latter costs more.
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.
The game’s integrated benchmark cannot report the bottom frame rate. We use DirectX 10 and 10.1 modes here.
This is Nvidia’s home turf where its solutions have been winning in every price category. On the other hand, you shouldn’t bother to replace your Radeon HD 5870 or HD 5970 with a couple of GeForce GTX 460 1GB cards to play this game because even top-end single-GPU graphics cards ensure smooth gameplay in H.A.W.X. at 2560x1600.
