Activision's Call of Duty: World at War goes right back to the bread and butter of the franchise - 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. 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.

At stock speed the performance delivered by the Formula is equal to that of the Sapphire HD 4770 and within 3 FPS of the performance delivered b the HD 4850 at 1920x1200. At 1920x1200 the action would slow down a bit in massive firefights but is stil playable at the maximum in game settings. When overclocked, the performance jumps by 9 FPS across all three resolutions and that means you really do not have to compromise the settings to play this game.
