Some really good figures going on there. The scaling does indeed look pretty impressive.

Good review.

Does xfire suffer the same casualty as sli in so much as if there's "a profile" for a game, the performance is that much better ?

lmao @ MSFX, one probable exception where a 16 core dual zeon setup with 16g will do u better than a smart gfxcard.

It's perhaps tiring review-wize to have to pre-qualify each game with "old..", "a bit older..". With a bunch of games coming (if schedules hold up) in Q1'10 that support Dx11, it might be worth thinking of consolidating the range of games used by OC3D as benchmarkers. Worth holding onto 1/2 Dx9 ? Maybe. Hold onto 1/2 Dx10 ? Probably. And I would imagine the earlier Dx11 releases would be asked to have bench markers built into them.

Great stuff.

When the DX11 games come through you can expect to see a new batch of reviews Rast and the games we use for benches change also. I for one am very interested in what Dirt2 for example plays like in DX10 vs DX11 mode. We shall see.

Epic review dude.

Am loving that design on the card.

600fps in CoD4?

Who needs that much?

5870 CF? *puts on Clarkson voice* ... POWAAAAAAHHHHHHH.

Yipes that is just stupendously powerful.

I definitely think that you need to find games that are harder on the graphics. Or perhaps even the whole system. COD4 hitting 600 makes that bench utterly worthless now. Might as well bench Quake 2

Dirt (original) is heavy on systems, so I imagine Dirt2 will be too. Maybe swap Grid for Dirt2, or even NFS Shift.

Crysis and Far Cry 2 still get it done in FPS terms. Can't think of much in the immediate future that's close. Apart from Crysis2 obviously.

CoH is still heavy for RTS' although Dawn of War II can potentially push a system harder.

Mirrors Edge can be hefty with decent settings, even if it is old.

I've not tried Flashpoint 2 or the new update for Stalker, but I imagine they'll be pretty hefty too.

I certainly think the time to retire Grid, Quake and COD4 has come.

I dont get those medium fps for cod4, not in the multiplayer......are those singleplayer tests? There's not way im getting 170fps medium on multiplayer with everything maxed out, and im using an i7920 at 4ghz and 9.10 catalyst drivers....

The medium i currently have is 125fps/130fps multiplayer.
