Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the successor to the Call of Duty crown. This iteration of the game is fought in many of the world's hot spots with modern armaments and firepower. You can play as either a US Marine or British SAS trooper. Since this game does not feature an in-game test, I will run through a section of the game and measure average FPS using Fraps 2.9.3.
- Anti-Aliasing: x4
- Anisotropic Filtering: Max
- Texture Quality: Extra
- All settings max
Again, once the resolution is increased to 1680x1050 and higher, the performance of the 4870X2 scales nicely. The FPS differential between the lowest and highest resolution tested was a mere 9 frames per second. It just does not tail off like the other comparison video cards. The 9800 GX2 does well at the lower resolutions, but it just gets hammered at the higher resolutions.
