Performance

Battlefield 2142

The game does not support widescreen resolutions without your adding special parameters into its launch icon. And even with the additional parameters the support of widescreen resolutions is implemented shabbily in Battlefield 2142. Some 2D graphics, like the HUD, may not display, for example, or display incorrectly. That is why we tested this game in 4:3 and 5:4 resolutions only, i.e. 1280x1024, 1600x1200 and 1920x1440 pixels.

Each version of GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB included into this review is sufficiently fast for you to play the game in 1600x1200 at the eye candy settings. They are not much slower than the GeForce 8800 GTS with 640 megabytes of graphics memory on board. Notwithstanding the significant difference in their clock rates, the six models do not differ much from each other until a display resolution of 1920x1440. The advantage of the EVGA card, for example, does not matter much in such a high resolution because it is the amount of graphics memory that’s important then: the six models all slow down suddenly, losing not only to the GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB, but also to the Radeon X1950 XTX and GeForce 7950 GX2.

In other words, there is no reason to search for a specific model of GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB to play Battlefield 2142. Each of them is going to ensure a comfortable performance with enabled 4x FSAA in resolutions up to 1600x1200 inclusive.
