Asus Radeon HD 6870 DirectCu
DiRT2 is a very recent race driving game, known for it's Direct X 11 support. Let's crank up the settings and give it a whirl...
Minor performance improvements over the sub £160 GTX 460 series but noticeable regardless. Again we see that at default speeds, the EAH6870 DirectCu is hardly quicker than the reference card.
Call of Duty - Modern Warfare 2
Modern Warfare 2 is among the most popular games available at present. With plenty of explosions and densely (polygon) populated maps, it should prove to be an interesting test for our setup.
We end on a positive note where stock for stock the EAH6870 runs circles around the GTX 460 and sees a healthy performance boost with it's overclock upwards of 1GHz.
