In Game Benchmarks
I mentioned it the previous section but it’s worth saying again. Our last video card review had a whole list of new in game benchmarks that we introduced to help keep our benchmark suite up to date. Today we are adding one more benchmark to that list, Sleeping Dogs. It’s not completely new but it’s still very up to date and should help you get a better idea how this and future cards will perform in the games that you like. We also went back and retested the GTX 650 Ti Boost’s on this new benchmark as well as the GTX 670 and GTX 650 Ti. Be sure to post up and let us know if you see upcoming games that you are interested in us adding as a benchmark, we do our best to stay above the curve and test using the latest games. No one wants to see how their new card will play games from years ago; it’s normally the cutting edge games that are pushing the limits.
Starting with our latest benchmarks I was curious how the compact BizView 750 would handle our tests. To be frank our benchmarks are designed to push the limits of even the fastest video cards on the market, so our expectations weren’t all that high. A few of our latest benchmarks like Bioshock Infinite showed that the BizView would require settings to be adjusted down, but the games did play at the highest settings, just very choppy. Turning off AA and adjusting the settings down slighting could make any of our new games more than playable on this card though. F1 2012, a great looking game, actually gave us 38 FPS. 38 FPS is considered playable but not perfectly smooth and to give you an idea of how playable please remember that a lot of console games run at 30 FPS. The BizView is still considerably more powerful than our current consoles.
When looking back as some of our slightly older benchmarks like Dirt Showdown you can see that this compact card gives us playable numbers once again, even with all of the details turned all the way up. I would suggest turning down Battlefield 3 slightly, at least turning off our 4x MSAA Antialiasing Deferred and 16X Anisotropic Filter settings and then you shouldn’t have any trouble playing it at ultra settings as well. All in all the BizView somehow manages to be both impressive due to its size and mediocre at the same time.
