XFX GTX295 PCIe Graphics Card

Gaming Benchmarks

 
Unreal Tournament 3 is the highly anticipated game from Epic Games and Midway. The game uses the latest Unreal engine, which combines fast gameplay along with high quality textures and lighting effects. All benchmarks were performed using UTbench with a fly-by of the DM-BioHazard map. As usual, all benchmarks were performed 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 
 


GRID
 
Race Driver: Grid is a visually taxing game that presents a challenge to any graphics system. Results were recorded using FRAPS to log the average FPS over a 2 minute race. To ensure consistency, the same track, car and general path of travel was used in each of the 5 benchmark runs for each graphics card, with an average FPS being calculated from the median three results.
 


 
 
Call of Duty 4 is a stunning DirectX 9.0c based game that really looks awesome and has a very full feature set. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions along with fast game play. Using the in-built Call Of Duty features, a 10-minute long game play demo was recorded and replayed on each of the GPU's using the /timedemo command a total of 5 times. The highest and lowest FPS results were then removed, with an average being calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 
Results Analysis

Much the same story was to be had with our first run of benchmarks. All the games above, even the PhysX enabled UTIII favoured the 4870x2, that was until the resolution was increased and AA applied. This is when the GTX295 took hold of the 4870x2 and gave it a solid beating. Thus far we are starting to see a pattern of results that show the GTX295 performing better as the resolution is increased, surprisingly, in spite of it having less memory available than the 4870x2.

Let's move on..

The current undisputed king of performance is the mighty 4870x2. It has consistently held off the GTX280, most recently the GTX285 but now the scales are balanced, 2 cores vs 2 cores, mano a mano. In a no holds barred, head to head stand off we pitch the best against the best, card against card to see who holds the winning hand in an OC3D clash of the titans.

Compare the price of the GTX295 against the 4870X2. You should have also overclocked the ATI card to make it more fair.

Still a solid good card. ATI's reply to be recieved soon?Quote
