How Many Pixels Do You Bench?
Through methodical and strenuous tests, we take real-world applications to the fullest by doing more than just 1 test (4) per benchmark at different resolutions and settings. It’s a long road to our GPU home.
From the graphs, these two hardcore brother cards take the fight to Crysis. No longer does Crysis pose a threat to the PCI-E 2.0x slots. The energy is just roaring when compared to the competition that clocks at a lower peak by 3 fps. The interesting part is that the fps actually increased overall by ~2.3 fps constantly with our 2560×1600 tests. This is definitely due to the reason that the Radeon 4870 drivers are more configured for this resolution set. The ATI Radeon 4870 really stars pushing the bar in terms of performance here.
