Zotac GTS250 'AMP' 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
Surprisingly, the HD4870 outperformed the GTS250 AMP in Crysis with even the HD4850 giving it a run for it's money until the resolutions and filters were increased. Far Cry 2 again placed the GTS250 in between the HD4870 and 4850 cards while Oblivion saw the GTS250 AMP put in it's best performance of the day. stomping over most of the competition bar the high end NVidia cards and the formidable dual GPU setups.
Let's move on to the conclusion...

Just another rehash of the tried and tested G92? Can a sprinkling of Zotac overclocking and 1GB of GDDR3 make this card a 4850/70 killer? Read our latest review to find out...
