This game is tested at the High level of detail, excepting the Shaders option which is set at Very High. This way we try to achieve a compromise between image quality and speed.
The overclocking is rewarding in Crysis, but the Zotac still can’t yield a bottom speed of 25fps or higher. Anyway, it is confidently ahead of the Radeon HD 4870 X2 at low resolutions and provides the best bottom speed at 1920x1200. That’s quite a good result overall.
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
The frame rate is fixed at 30fps in this game as this is the rate at which the physical model is being updated at the server. Thus, this 30fps speed is the required minimum for playing the game.
There is an effect from the overclocked frequencies of the Zotac card, but you can only see it at 1920x1200 and higher resolutions. The 10% increase in average performance at 2560x1600 is not enough to catch up with the Radeon HD 4870 X2 which has a combined memory bandwidth of over 200GBps.
