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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Higher is Better

 

Even with PhysX set to low, the HD 5570 struggled in the lower resolutions and only managed 21 FPS at 1920 x 1200. When overclocked though, much like with Crysis, the HD 5570 started to put up better numbers and, in the end, almost reached 30 FPS at 1920 x 1200.
