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.
- 4x Anti-Aliasing
- 16x Anisotrophic Filtering
- PhysX: Low
- Ambient Occlusion: On
- Quality: High
- Resolution: 1280x1024 - 2560x1600
The GTX 295 and GTX 480 both offer similar performance at the higher resolutions. The GTX 480 is faster than the entire single GPU comparison suite but only beats the HD 5870 by 3 FPS at 2560x1600.
