XFX GTX295 PCIe Graphics Card

Gaming Benchmarks Continued

 
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.
 
 

 
 

Oblivion from Bethseda is now an 'old' game by today's standards, but is still one of the most visually taxing games out there. The benchmark was run in the wilderness with all settings set to the maximum possible. Bloom was used in preference to HDR. The test was run five times with the average FPS then being deduced.





Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2, called Dunia, meaning "world", "earth" or "living" in Parsi. The engine takes advantage of multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.
 

 
Results Analysis

In typical fashion I spoke too soon. The 4870x2 performed better in Crysis at the highest level in contrast to our previous results. I do feel that the GTX295 had some driver issues at 2560x1600 with 4xAA/AF though as the foliage flickered on occasion and the benchmark stalled at odd points which may have had some effect on the result. At all other resolution the card easily outperformed the 4870x2. Oblivion showed the GTX295 to be superior as did Far Cry 2 (bundled with the XFX GTX295), out pacing the 4870x2 at all resolutions and under all conditions.

Let's head over to the conclusion where I will shed some thought on the XFX GTX295...

Compare the price of the GTX295 against the 4870X2. You should have also overclocked the ATI card to make it more fair.

Still a solid good card. ATI's reply to be recieved soon?Quote

Why would I overclock the ATI to make it fair? Both cards were run stock throughout apart from the overclocking section which showed the possibilities of overclocking the GTX295 (which was the card being reviewed!).Quote

Yeah I meant the overclocking section just to see how the card fares/fairs (Sp?)Quote

I think that review was pretty balanced TBH...BTW I want that card. Just thought, you could stick two of these bad boys in (quad SLI) then have a GTX 285 for a third/PPU/fifth GPU.

Only problem is the price...anybody want a kidney?Quote
