YOYOTech Water Dragon 940

3DMark, Call of Duty 4 & Crysis Results

3DMark
 
3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 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 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.
 
 
 
Crysis
 
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.
 
 
 
Result Observations

Moving on to gaming, we can see that the Water Dragon 940 really shines. Granted that most of the FPS advantage can be attributed to the HD 4870 graphics card (vs the 4850 in the Spartan), but never less the FPS obtained in Crysis is definitely playable at 1280x1024 as are the Call of Duty 4 results as 1900x1200 with 4xAA.

Nice nice.

Though I think people will still prefer the Spartan 300 if they don't care about looks, don't care about a few extra fps and want to save money.

Anyone else agree?
