Performance in RPG
The non-overclocked Radeon HD 4890 is superior to the GeForce GTX 285 at every resolution. When overclocked, it is competitive to the noisy and voracious monster Radeon HD 4850 X2. This game is optimized for ATI’s graphics architecture.
The new card enjoys a 7-10% advantage over the predecessors depending on the resolution. Overclocking adds another 5-11% to it. Not bad, but it is not enough to open any new gaming horizons, although provides comfortable minimum gaming performance with forced FSAA 4x in 1280x1024. I would like to point out that Mass Effect game initially doesn’t support antialiasing, so forcing it in the drivers doesn’t provide any serious image quality improvement because of actively utilized post-processing algorithms.
