Performance in RPG
At the default frequencies the Radeon HD 4770 cannot cope with the resolution of 1920x1200 only, but beats it when overclocked, becoming as fast as the Radeon HD 4850. Overclocked versions of Radeon HD 4770 are going to enjoy high demand, we guess. But even without any overclocking the new card is no worse than the GeForce GTS 250 512MB and even faster than the latter at 1280x1024!
It’s different in Mass Effect: if you force full-screen antialiasing, the entry-level cards are not fast enough for this game that combines FPS and RPG elements. Anyway, the Radeon HD 4700 deserves our praise again. It is no worse than the GeForce GTS 250 512MB and is only 3-4% slower than the Radeon HD 4850 – this can be easily made up for by overclocking.
