Borderlands: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx
The “green” team are superior in the FSAA-less mode but fall behind their AMD opponents as soon as 4x MSAA is enabled. The Radeon HD 6790 is 16% faster than the Radeon HD 5770 and 17 to 22% slower than the Radeon HD 6850.
Grand Theft Auto IV: Episodes from Liberty City
The Radeons are overall faster than the GeForce series cards in this test, the HD 6790 beating the GTX 550 Ti by 35%.
Left 4 Dead 2
The performance of the graphics cards is again proportional to their recommended price except for the Radeon HD 6790 and GeForce GTX 550 Ti which cost the same money but differ in speed, the new card from AMD being 17-19% faster than its opponent.
Metro 2033: The Last Refuge
Each of these graphics cards is downright slow in Metro 2033: The Last Refuge. Although this game runs at reduced graphics quality settings, we do not get a comfortable frame rate. We can only note that the Radeon HD 6790 is faster than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti.
Just Cause 2
The Radeon HD 6790 beats the GeForce GTX 550 Ti in Just Cause 2 in the FSAA-less mode. When FSAA is enabled, the Nvidia card is just as good as the AMD one. Besides, the new card isn’t much faster than the Radeon HD 5770 but as much as 16 to 26% slower than the Radeon HD 6850. The Radeon HD 6850 and GeForce GTX 460 are again comparable to the Radeon HD 6870 when overclocked.
