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 high resolution. I will use Fraps to measure a section of gameplay in the Semper Fi map on Makin Island to compare the performance of these video cards.

Call of Duty World at War sets the familiar pace of the past tests. The XFX HD 5870 overclocked actually did get double the frame rate compared to the Sapphire HD 4870 1GB Toxic in the lowest and highest resolutions. The 4890's however weren't stomped as heavily. The valiant GTX 285 was no where near the 5870.
