Crysis Warhead is without a doubt one hard nut to crack, especially at higher resolutions and a dash of Anti Aliasing and Anisotrophic Filtering. Given the game's "tough" characteristics, we thought it might be a novel idea to throw it at mighty Goliath and see what happens
Indeed it was a mighty battle but it sounds like a mild victory, although even Crysis has this particular machine working overtime. While suffering from occasionally choppy framerates, gameplay appeared to be sufficiently fluid even with the eyecandy.
Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2, a slightly older hit but based on a fairly demanding engine also has a fair level of GPU dependancy.
With framerates sitting at no less than 68fps, Far Cry 2 operates flawlessly.
Microsoft Flight Simulator X
Microsoft Flight Simulator X is part of a handful of games that are heavily CPU reliant and so our focus now returns to our sample's overclocked. Core i7 920.
The Radeon HD 5870 doesn't particularly help this game and the relatively low framerates really show how demanding this game is. Regardless, the quality of game play was superb.
Call of Duty 4
Here we observe the Titan Goliath swatting an ageing but popular hit like a pesky fly, even at 1920x1080.
