Devil May Cry 4
The new GeForce GTX 260 enjoys a record advantage over the older version of the card in this test (in one quality mode only, though). Otherwise, the results do not differ much from what we’ve seen in the previous tests.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky
The first impression from benchmarking graphics cards in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky is that they deliver a very low frame-rate at the maximum graphics quality settings. Alas, none of the tested cards can provide a comfortable speed. Anyway, we can see a difference between the two Radeon HD 4870 (the 1024MB version is faster, of course) and ATI’s victory over Nvidia. The GeForce GTX 280 is only competitive to the cheaper Radeon HD 4870. The GeForce GTX 260 cards are slower and compete between each other: the newer version with 216 unified shader processors is 7-8% faster than the older version.
