Performance in Simulators
Colin McRae: Dirt 2
We enable the DirectX 11 mode for graphics cards that support it.
This is yet another impressive demonstration of the GF104’s huge potential. When overclocked to 900 MHz, this GPU is faster than the 850 MHz Cypress core from AMD installed on the Radeon HD 5870. Such overclocking is not very necessary in this game even at 2560x1600, yet it’s always good to have an extra reserve of speed.
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.
The game’s integrated benchmark cannot report the bottom frame rate. We use DirectX 10 and 10.1 modes here.
The overclocked Palit GeForce GTX 460 Sonic Platinum has no rivals here. However, like in most other tests, such overclocking is of little practical worth. It is only somewhat useful at 2560x1600.
