Testing:

Activision's Call Of Duty World at War goes right back to the franchise's bread and butter, WWII FPS action. In this rendition you start off in the South Pacific and move through a series of missions that flip back and forth between the Russian front and the island hopping advance toward the Imperial Japanese homeland. Included is a mission on Peliliu Island, arguably one of the more difficult and costly battles in the Pacific theater. The gameplay in the single player mode is rather short but the game makes up for this shortcoming in online gameplay. If you thought COD4 looked nice, this game is amazing with the graphics maxed out playing at a large resolution. This game just may be my reason to move to a 30 inch monitor. I will use Fraps to measure a section of gameplay in the Semper Fi map on Makin Island to compare performance of these video cards.

Settings:

  • All in game settings to maximum
  • FPS measured via Fraps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is not a video card in this comparison that has unplayable frame rates at any resolution at the maximum possible settings in the game. The Nvidia cards clearly have the superior framerates in all four resolutions. The difference between a stock GTX260/216 core card and the HD4870 1GB equates to 12 frames per second. As a percentage this is a 21 percent improvement. The gap grows to 26 percent when comparing the overclocked GTX260 card to the HD4870 1GB card. Do I see a broom hanging around the corner? Because this one is a clean swep for the boys in green.
