Testing:

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 large resolution. This game just may be the reason to move to a 30 inch monitor. I will use Fraps to measure a section of gameplay in the Semper Fi map on Makin Island, to compare performance of these video cards.

Settings:

  • All in-game settings to maximum
  • FPS measured via Fraps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While not the fastest card at 2560x1600, the PowerColor HD 4890 does beat out the ATI offerings. The NVIDIA Cards just seem to like to perform at a higher level than the ATI offerings are capable of with the current drivers.
