Crysis Warhead & FarCry 2

Zotac GTX580 Review

Crysis Warhead

If modern gaming shows us anything it's that there are far too many FPS games. However we'll dust off the old stalwart Crysis Warhead anyway. In keeping with the latest line of nVidia GPUs, the GTX580 can keep this performance beast in check and happily ticking along at over 60FPS. Something that once seemed unheard of is now more than attainable. The MSI Lightning does beat it by quite a margin though, showing that the GTX580 is certainly an evolution rather than anything radically new.

FarCry 2

The Dunia engine was rightly hailed as being fantastic when it was first brought to us with FarCry 2. Vegitation and destructability were amazing, but the fire was the absolute Daddy. Now it's starting to feel its age a little bit all of our cards on test manage to hold their end up comfortably even at these high IQ settings.

Be interested in what you thought of the drivers. What we've picked up was that it seemed as if just the identifiers were in the 262.xx, and that 263.xx atleast should have some 5xx 'special stuff' in them.

The oc too, somewhere around 100mhz should really be achieveable as there will be something like a 835 or 850 "oc" variant on the market using the same cooler and the usual crappy compound.

Not really worth it if you got a tamed 480. But £400 should really be the stock versions price prior to christmas, dropping to £350-375 in Q1.Quote
