Gameplay Notes

In Call of Duty 4, the EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked delivered excellent performance at the resolution of 1920x1200 with 4x antialiasing enabled. A minimum frame rate of at least 60 frames per second is desirable in fast-paced titles like Call of Duty 4 as shooting accuracy improves greatly - especially during online multiplayer sessions.

The resolution of 1920x1200 seemed to be the target for Crysis as the average/minimum frame rates during gameplay under Windows XP was 53/31. This test was from a sample of 3,000 plus frames captured while progressing through the intro level. With 2x antialiasing, the frame rate dipped into the low-20s and turned out to be borderline playable. Note that enabling the flash light caused a slight decrease in performance.
