Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare MP
This game draws a picture of performance that is quite different from what we’ve seen in Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. Here, the two Radeon HD 4870 cards are good in the low-quality display mode, differing but little from each other. But the GeForce GTX 260/280 cards are ahead in the high-quality mode. The new GeForce GTX 260 is 4-5% faster than the previous version of the same card.
Unreal Tournament 3
The still rather popular shooter Unreal Tournament 3 shows a difference between the 512MB and 1024MB versions of Radeon HD 4870 in those modes where the requirements to the amount of memory are high. For example, the 1024MB version is 4% faster in the low-quality mode and at 1024x768, but as much as 13% faster at 1920x1024.
Nvidia’s solutions are somewhat faster than the Radeons in this game. The new GeForce GTX 260/216 is 3-5% ahead of the older version and 6-15% slower than the GeForce GTX 280 depending on quality mode and resolution.
