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.
- 0x Anti-Aliasing
- 16x Anisotropic Filtering
- PhysX: Low
- Ambient Occlusion: On
- Quality: High
- Resolution: 1280x1024 - 1920x1200
Higher is Better
Darkest of Days really pushes the HD 5450 past its limits, as the card continues to be the last of the bunch at both stock and overclocked settings.
