Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Devil May Cry 4
The Radeon HD 4890 is 5-7% faster than the Radeon HD 4870 1GB at the default frequencies and 17-22% faster at the overclocked frequencies. The game is not very demanding, though. The new card can easily ensure comfortable gameplay at 2560x1600 without any overclocking.
Prince of Persia
The ordinary Radeon HD 4890 is not much better than the Radeon HD 4870 1GB in this test, but the picture is different when you unleash its huge overclocking potential. The overclocked 4890 beats the GeForce GTX 285 and also raises the bottom speed to comfortable level at 1920x1200. That’s very nice for a solution priced at less than $240.
