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 my 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The HD 4890 eclipses the performance of the HD 4870 cards in three out of four tests with the Overclocked Toxic Editon card playing the spoiler. The GTX 275 tops the HD 4890 in all four resolutions, while the GTX 280 and GTX 260 lose in two resolutions each.
