Performance in First-Person 3D Shooters

Battlefield 2142

This game doesn’t support display resolutions of 16:10 format, so we use a resolution of 1920x1440 pixels (4:3 format) instead of 1920x1200 for it.

The XFX card is but slightly ahead of the GeForce 8800 GTX, yet it’s a good start nonetheless. The reference card’s performance also suggests that G92-based solutions in full configuration can be competitive against flagship G80-based products.

BioShock

BioShock doesn’t support FSAA when running in Windows Vista’s DirectX 10 environment. That’s why we benchmarked the cards without FSAA.

The GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB enjoys a bigger advantage over the GeForce 8800 GTX than in the previous case, especially at low resolutions where it amounts to 20%. The gap is getting closer as the display resolution grows up. At 1920x1200 it is 8-9% with the XFX card and less than 5% with the reference card. As you can see, overclocking the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB has little practical value for BioShock.
