EVGA GeForce GTX 295 Review - Page 3 of 9

PERFORMANCE AT 1680x1050 vs. GEFORCE GTX 280

As both the GeForce GTX 280 and EVGA GeForce GTX 295 are high-end products, they were put to the test by using the highest quality in-game graphics settings. In some tests, greater levels of image quality were achieved through the use of antialiasing and/or DirectX 10.

Unreal Tournament 3

Benchmark results are ordered by the highest to the lowest average frame rate from the GeForce GTX 295. Even at our starting resolution of 1680x1050, the EVGA GeForce GTX 295 distinguished itself in our test suite by outperforming a stock GeForce GTX 280 by an average of 41%.

The difference would have been greater had PhysX been disabled. In the PhysX supported titles, performance increased by 17% in Mirrors Edge and by 23% in Unreal Tournament 3.

1680x1050 - Average Frame Rate

Significant increases in the average frame rate were seen in older games, like Call of Duty 4 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and in DirectX 10 titles, which include Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Far Cry 2 and Lost Planet.

The increase in Far Cry 2, with DirectX 10 and Ultra settings, was an impressive 50% and a 67% increase was seen in Cysis at the Very High setting.

On the other hand, Fallout 3 and Oblivion, both of which are based on the Embryo game engine, had much smaller performance increases.
