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 gameplay. Using the in-built Call Of Duty features, a 10-minute long gameplay 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.

The Last Remnant is a role-playing game developed by Square Enix that uses the Unreal 3 engine to do something slightly different to its accustomed FPS style.

Nice review. Appauling that they leave all of the settings on auto and let that poor CPU hit 100°c!

Looks fairly tidy to me for a PC build from a company so, well done there! Quote

That 100C is criminal. The sort of people who buy a prebuilt computer generally won't know them back to front, so won't bother checking the bios or CPU temps, leaving them with a smoking pile of silicon in next to no time.Quote
