Testing:

What would testing be if you did not show both sides of the fence? In this test, PhysX was set to low, while leaving the remaining settings intact. You have seen time and again where the ATI cards suffer when PhysX is enabled. Mirror's Edge and Cryostasis are two prime examples. Darkest of Days is no different. What happens in this test shows that, although the game can be played by cards from the red team, the video effects and quality are diminished.

 

Settings

  • 4xAA
  • 16xAF
  • Global Settings = High
  • Physx Low
  • Ambient Occlusion On

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Higher = Better

 

This is the oddest benchmark run I've seen through the entire review. The scores on the 1280x1024 resolution are indeed correct, as the framerate DROPS from stock speeds to overclocked. Otherwise the card sits in the #2 spot. The abnormality has been verified and is repeatable, which is weird.
