XFX 8800 GTS 512 and Asus 8800 GT 512 - G92 shoot out

Oblivion and Company of Heroes

Oblivion
 
Oblivion is a game that really taxed all of the cards at the time of it's release. Well over a year on and the current generation of cards simply fly through it. However, with advanced HDR, excellent draw distances, detailed grass and scenery as well as fantastic water/magic effects it's a good game to gauge performance for those who love RPG's.

Oblivion was a mixed bag of results again, but showed that the XFX 8800 GTS comes out top on performance. The Asus 8800 GT again held it's own and indeed, all games tore up this benchmark.
 
Company of Heroes
 
Company of Heroes is a WWII-based RTS game that has an enormous amount of world detail. I played a DirectX patched version of the game that gives modern GPU's a bit of a workout.
 
company of heroes
 
The 8800 GTX comes out top in this game that seems to utilise more DirectX10 features. The XFX 8800 GTS and Asus 8800 GT both do very well as well here with a silky smooth framerate allowing for a very enjoyable experience.

Great insight into the higher end of the gpu spectrum.

I have to be fair, even tho u`ve got a 1 to 4 positioning, I don`t think there`s that much in it for any of them. I know the Ati slides in the rankings, but it does show itself to be a fine card.

An interesting comparison would have been performance versus costing, seeing as they`re as close as they appear to be.

I`m a bit at odds with the oc results too. I simply can`t achieve the memory overclock on my GT without it having fits. But I can clock the gpu to around 720 (from 670).

What would impress me is some1 buying the cheapest GT, putting it under water, and claiming back those clock hertz with their superior cooling. Sounds nice.

Suprizes me a bit tho that the GTS isn`t launched as a bigger performer. Although pricewize, it does seem to start from stock where the GT limit starts. Leaving u further to climb

Nice review m8, think every1s doing the "going to bed early to get up early" trick Quote
