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.
- Global Settings = High
- Physx Low
- Ambient Occlusion On
Higher = Better
A recurring theme is becoming apparent with the GTX 460 outperforming the HD 5850 at the low end and the HD 5850 taking 2560x1600. The GTX 465 is easily outperformed and even if you make the comparison of the overclocked GTX 465 scores against the base clocks of the Palit card the 460 still comes out on top.
