ZOTAC GTX480 Review
Given the reliance of Crysis Warhead on PhysX based cards, and how well it responds to them, it's no surprise at all to see the GTX480 eat it for breakfast, especially in the maximum frame-rate tests.
When it comes the important average FPS test it's all a lot closer, but with the overclocked ZOTAC 480 allowing us to put Vsync on and see the benefit it definitely takes home the laurels here.
Modern Warfare 2
Modern Warfare 2 suffers from the same issue that we had with Shift, namely it's a console based game as so is reliant on absolute power rather than the little tweaks that enable the two different architectures to find gains in other ways. Our results reflect this although none of our cards remotely flinch and almost beg for a higher detail setting.
Metro 2033 is the latest all shiny shooter employing nearly every fancy effect you could ever hope to see. It certainly is a feast for the eyes.
It looks like this could be the DirectX 11 equivelant of the Crytek games, because none of our cards managed to give a huge framerate. The ZOTAC in its overclocked state provided a much smoother gameplay experience without the frame-drops the others experienced.
Shall we move on to the conclusion and wrap this up?
