XFX HD 4890 XXX 1GB PCIe Graphics Card

Gaming benchmarks continued

 
Crysis is without doubt one of the most visually stunning and hardware-challenging games to date. By using CrysisBench - a tool developed independently of Crysis - we performed a total of 5 timedemo benchmarks using a GPU-intensive pre-recorded demo. To ensure the most accurate results, the highest and lowest benchmark scores were then removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 

 
 

Oblivion from Bethseda is now an 'old' game by today's standards, but is still one of the most visually taxing games out there. The benchmark was run in the wilderness with all settings set to the maximum possible. Bloom was used in preference to HDR. The test was run five times with the average FPS then being deduced.

 



Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2, called Dunia, meaning "world", "earth" or "living" in Parsi. The engine takes advantage of multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.
 
 
 
Results Analysis

Once again the XFX4890XXX card put up a very good fight against the GTX285, winning out in Far Cry 2 until the resolution was maxed out. Oblivion favoured the Nvidia cards while Crysis showed mixed results all round. The XFX4890XXX has not exactly blown it's stock clocked brother out of the water it did show performance differences, albeit on a small scale.

Let's head over to the conclusion where I will shed some thought on the XFX 4890 XXX
