Far Cry 2 and Metro 2033

Sparkle X560 Ti DF Calibre Review

Far Cry 2

The rather creaky old Far Cry 2 gives us our first taste of the Sparkle card not quite being on a par with a GTX570, but it's still a far way ahead of the reference design. Whilst the difference between 57FPS (reference) and 65 FPS (Sparkle) might not seem like a lot, it's enough to make VSync a usable option and the difference in visual quality that VSync makes certainly is reason enough to champion the Calibre.

Metro 2033

Easily the most impressive performance from the overclock we achieved comes in Metro 2033. A game which is renowned for being limited in single GPU scenarios gives us a decent result with the card in out-of-the-box shape, but once again we pass the stock GTX570 when overclocked. There is nothing this card cannot do.

ive said it before and ill say it again...the GF 104/114 is the best gpu to date period!!! the 460 was brilliant and the die shrink made it even more so!!!

this is a GORGEOUS card......if they make a 580 like this instead of the arctic cooling triple fan in.....ill sell my 6970's is a second!!!!!!!
