In Game Benchmarks
Along with most of our old game benchmarks we are introducing a whole mess of new benchmarks to help keep up to date with the most recent games. Our new in game benchmarks include F1 2012 that will replace F1 2011, Hitman: Absolution, Tomb Raider, and Bioshock Infinite. Bioshock and Tomb Raider are especially new and we are excited to be able to show everyone what to expect as far as performance with those two games before you buy them. With just the two GTX 650 Ti Boost results on them right now, the graphs look a little empty. But they are perfect for comparing the difference between this card and the non-overclocked reference card. Bioshock Infinite and F1 2012 showed the biggest improvement with a whopping 5 FPS jump in F1 2012 and a respectable 2.5+ in Bioshock Infinite. That is a nice improvement for just a little bump in clock speed.
In our older tests you can get a better idea how the MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost Twin Frozr 2Gb OC Edition stands in game against cards we have previously tested. In Battlefield 3 for example we saw 52.367, it’s not the 60 FPS that we like to see, but considering the card it’s still not bad performance and it should be more than playable for almost everyone.
I included our results with F1 2011 for anyone who is interested on how this card compared to previous reviews, but in the future we will only be testing cards with F1 2012.
