In Dead Space, as part of the crew of the USG Kellion you are headed on a repair mission to repair a ship in distress. Things go from bad to worse, starting with the crash landing and seemingly silent and "Dead" ship, the USG Ishimuru. Offering a non-traditional over the shoulder viewing angle, the game gets right into the action as soon as the ventilation systems are activated. From there, things get worse with the appearance of the Necromorphs. Survival now becomes a primary concern for the main character, Isaac Clarke. Survive and you may find the loved one that was aboard the Ishimuru.

At no point in the testing were the Nvidia cards in danger of being overtaken. This game seems to favor the Green team much more than the Red team. That being said, the Atomic showed just how much better than the stock HD 4890 it really is. The differential between the Atomic and the stock HD 4890 was between 7-19 FPS. That's a significant step forward in performance.
