Asus EAH4770 PCIe Graphics Card
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.
The results on the previous page could not be repeated with Far Cry 2 and Crysis with the both 4770's struggling at the Highest resolutions. Oblivion was just about playable but struggled in open areas when AA was added. At low/med resolutions the 4770 coped fine though and coupling both of the cards up together gave performance some high end cards would be happy with.
