Performance in RPG
The game being very demanding and its long-range weapon mode differing but slightly from ordinary first-person shooters, few modern graphics cards can provide an acceptable speed at 1280x1024. Besides the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX and overclocked versions of GeForce 8800 GT 512MB, the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is now capable of that, too.
The current version of the game doesn’t support FSAA, so we performed the test with anisotropic filtering only.
The GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB is 13% ahead of the GeForce 8800 GTX at 1280x1024 but the gap shrinks to 7% and then 3% as the display resolution grows up. You shouldn’t replace your GeForce 8800 GTX if you’ve already got it as this card is going to serve you well for a while yet. But if you are just looking for a graphics card and are ready to shell out up to $400 for it, your choice is obvious now.
