Call of Juarez

The game is too heavy on the computer’s graphics subsystem and the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB can only run it with a comfortable speed at 1280x1024 only. Even so, the min speed bottoms out to below the critical 25fps point. There is almost no difference between the six models of GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB, but they are all somewhat faster than the GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB for some reason. The GeForce 7950 GX2 turns in the best result here, yet it cannot make a breakthrough to the next resolution, its advantage being a mere 10%. Moreover, Nvidia’s previous-generation GPUs offer a lower-quality anisotropic filtering.

The EVGA card with its highest GPU and memory clock rates among the participating products is surely superior in higher resolutions. It is 13-14% ahead of the cards with reference frequencies, yet this doesn’t mean much considering the average speed of 28-32fps. The Gainward has the smallest performance growth while the Foxconn and XFX cards are in between it and the EVGA because their shader processors are not overclocked and work at the standard frequency of 1188MHz.

So, it’s all similar to Battlefield 2142 here. The choice of a particular version of GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB must be based upon your personal preferences, price and availability rather than on performance.
