Lowest Prices

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:

  • Anti-Aliasing: 4x
  • Anisotrophic Filtering: 16x
  • PhysX: Low
  • Ambient Occlusion: On
  • Quality: High
  • Resolution: 1280x1024 - 2560x1600

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

Higher is Better

 

With Darkest of Days, no improvement was visible and it looks like CrossFire may have hurt performance some, as the 5870 from Sapphire came in faster than the XFX cards.
