Call of Duty
There are quite a lot of shader-based special effects in Call of Duty 2 and the game also appreciates a good memory controller. That’s why the Radeon X1900 XTX CrossFire with a total of 96 pixel processors wins here. However, the single Radeon X1900 XTX is hopelessly behind the GeForce 7950 GX2 in this test.
The GeForce 7950 GX2 has to content itself with the third place, yet its average performance is high enough for playing in every resolution at 4x FSAA plus 16x anisotropic filtering.
Strangely enough, the new dual-chip graphics card from Nvidia is only 2-4fps behind the GeForce 7900 GTX SLI in SLI AA 8x mode. But neither solution provides a comfortable frame rate in resolutions above 1024x768.
The most difficult test mode may only be interesting for owners of a Radeon X1900 XTX CrossFire configuration as it is the single graphics subsystem with an average performance of over 55fps here.
Yes, Nvidia’s 16x SLI AA renders a better-quality picture than ATI’s 14x Super AA, but none of the available Nvidia products can give you even 50fps in this test. It means that comfortable play is not possible.
