Call of Juarez
Call of Juarez is one of the few games in which the ATI Radeon HD 2900 series has a strong position. Here, the ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT 512MB is just a few frames-per-second worse than the overclocked versions of GeForce 8800 GT and beats the reference GeForce 8800 GT as well as the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX. Ironically, this game had taken part in Nvidia’s The Way It’s Meant to Be Played program but it is currently not on the official TWIMTBP program list.
The game has serious graphics memory requirements in DirectX 10 mode. As you can see, the standard amount of 512 megabytes is not enough for it at resolutions above 1280x1024 – that’s why the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX with its 768MB of memory goes ahead so suddenly. It is followed by the ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT 512MB. At a resolution of 1280x1024 the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB is the only card to feel the shortage of memory, yet even the best result of 23fps from the GeForce 8800 GTX is not good enough for comfortable play.
