Testing:

Dead Space:

In Dead Space, as part of the crew of the USG Kellion, you are headed on a repair mission to repair a ship in distress. Things go from bad to worse starting with the crash landing and the seemingly silent and "Dead" ship, the USG Ishimuru. Offering a non-traditional over the shoulder viewing angle, the game gets right into the action as soon as the ventilation systems are activated. From there things get worse with the appearance of the Necromorphs. Survival now becomes a primary concern for the main character Isaac Clarke. Survive and you may find the loved one that was aboard the Ishimuru.

Something about this game must not agree with the EAH4870's stock settings. At stock speeds the "Dark Knight" lost to every card. However, when overclocked, the "Dark Knight" outperformed every card except the 4890. Is anyone else confused? I'll admit these scores are a bit strange, but I ran through the tests multiple times with similar results. I guess the lack of performance at stock speeds was tacked onto the overclocked speeds.
