Performance in RPG
The Radeon HD 4830 has a higher bottom speed than the GeForce 9800 GT but both cards deliver playable frame rates at 1280x1024 only. Anyway, ATI’s solution is ahead at two out of the three tested resolutions and even beats the GeForce 9800 GTX+ at 1280x1024.
The ATI Radeon HD 4830 is quite good here. It is at least as good as GeForce 9800 GT, and in 1280x1024 and 1920x1200 is significantly ahead of it, especially if we look at the minimal performance numbers. It means that this solution is a pretty good choice for playing Mass Effect. Here I have to remind you that this game doesn’t’ formally support antialiasing. You may still force it from the driver control panel, however, it will cause a significant performance drop in this case.
