EVGA GTX570 Review

FarCry 2 and Metro 2033

EVGA GTX570 Review

FarCry 2

By virtue of its DirectX 10 nature the Dunia-engined FarCry 2 is more reliant upon the cards ability to process raw polygons than any driver trickery. Despite this the EVGA rocks hard both stock and overclocked, being 2 frames ahead of the reference nVidia, although well behind the sheer grunt available to both the GTX580 and GTX480.

 

Metro 2033

Metro eats graphics cards for breakfast and shows no remorse and the GTX570 is no different. It does however follow some of the trends of FarCry2 in that it takes full advantage of maximum horsepower. This is especially visible with the difference in the average frame-rates between the mildly overclocked reference card and the mighty overclock of the EVGA GTX570.

I really should be happy with my current cards, but the 570's are just so new and shiney!
