Testing:

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.

Game Settings:

  • 0x Anti-Aliasing
  • 16x Anisotropic Filtering
  • PhysX: Low
  • Ambient Occlusion: On
  • Quality: High
  • Resolution: 1280x1024 - 1920x1200

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The HD5550 fell into second to last place in this benchmark again, only beating out the Axle G210, and again by almost twice the FPS.
