Performance in First-Person 3D Shooters
Aliens vs. Predator
Unfortunately, 37 frames per second is the best you can get even from the Radeon HD 6670 in Aliens vs. Predator at the highest graphics quality settings. On the other hand, the game seems playable at this speed, particularly because there is some kind of auto-aiming available for each of the three races.
Well, we can’t say there is no progress in the entry-level market sector. The Radeon HD 6450 is actually twice as fast as the previous generation, even though this means 11 fps only. So you can’t enjoy the game fully on this graphics card unless you lower the graphics quality settings.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
The Radeon HD 6670 and HD 6570 deliver higher speeds than in the previous test, especially at high resolutions. They make the game playable even in the Full-HD mode.
Call of Duty: Black Ops
The Call of Duty engine favors the Turks architecture and runs fast enough even on the Caicos-based Radeon HD 6450.
The entry-level graphics cards can hardly help you save the Earth from aliens in Crysis 2 unless you lower the graphics quality settings. The Radeon HD 6670 and Radeon HD 6570 can cope with this game in the 720p mode, though.
This game is tested with the tessellation option turned on.
This is one of the heaviest gaming tests on our list, so the Turks-based cards cannot deliver high performance here. The frame rate is low unless you disable some of the special effects in the game's menu.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
This game runs with enabled tessellation.
The Radeon HD 6670 notches 37 fps, leaving the rest of the cards behind. The Radeon HD 6450 can also be used to explore the Zone after relaxing the graphics quality settings a little.
Unfortunately, the entry-level cards are too slow in the Full-HD mode here.
