World in Conflict
The benchmark integrated into World in Conflict shows that the GeForce GTX 260/280 cards are somewhat faster than the Radeon HD 4870 cards at low resolutions and easy display modes. As for the two versions of Radeon HD 4870, the card with the double amount of graphics memory enjoys certain advantage. Moreover, it overtakes the GeForce GTX 260/216SP at 1920x1200 with FSAA and AF when working at the default frequencies. The latter is in its turn ahead of the ordinary GeForce GTX 260 by 4-8%.
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
You can’t feel the difference between the two versions of Radeon HD 4870 at such a high frame rate, yet this difference is present. The same goes for the two versions of GeForce GTX 260. Then, you can see that the results of the cards in the low-quality mode (i.e. without FSAA and AF) are similar to those we have seen in the previous benchmarks. But as soon as 8xFSAA and anisotropic filtering are turned on, the Radeon HD 4870 leave no chance to their opponents, including the top-end GeForce GTX 280. That’s interesting because I didn’t see such an advantage before when I used the older drivers and version 1.4 of the game.
