nVidia GeForce GTX 460 768MB GDDR5 Review
Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2 is based on a rather demanding engine and also has a fair level of GPU dependancy at higher resolutions. For this test, we used the game's comprehensive benchmarking tool.
The GTX 460 shows no sign of trouble in this game although once again, respectable performance gains are seen from the overclock.
Aliens vs Predator
This game is a very recent hit that utilises many Direct X 11 features, including Tesselation. What a perfect way to stretch our GTX 460's legs.
In regions containing explosions and hordes of Aliens, we saw significant framerate dips in the range of 20fps. At times the game felt a little choppy however the overclock remedied this issue.
Microsoft Flight Simulator X
Flight Simulator X is performing as well as it can due to the game being terribly CPU bound. This is a shame as the GTX 460 has much more to offer than this.
