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 high resolution. I will use Fraps to measure a section of gameplay in the Semper Fi map on Makin Island to compare the performance of these video cards.

Again, the Diamond HD 5770 XOC is the fastest card, but this time the difference between it and the Hawk is relatively small. Also, once again, the relatively small overclock on the core doesn't add much in the way of additional performance. The overclock only added two additional frames per second at 1920 x 1200 and the lower resolutions didn't see large gains either.
