In Game Performance
Our in game performance tests range from built in benchmarks from Dirt to Shogun 2 and time demo’s from Crysis2 and Metro 2033. All of our benchmarks are run at 1080p on the games highest settings other than our DX9 and 10 results in Crysis 2 and Metro 2033. Our results as a whole came in just below the HD 6870, just like our 3Dmark testing. For the most part all of the games we played will have to be turned down slightly if you are looking for 60FPS playback. I did find the Battlefield Bad Company 2 gameplay to be smooth even though the sub 60 FPS numbers may not show that. If you are looking at this card you will be able to run just about anything on high settings at a resolution of less than 1080p or games at 1080p on medium to high settings.
