Yip, surprisingly very close between the three at higher res.

Mines overclocked so it should perform be slightly better that those benchies. :D

Ill be trying at 1920 x 1440 lol.

Is SLI not working at all? The 9800GX2 gets eaten alive. Looks like having more than 512 mb of VRAM helps out too since it looks as though G92 wasn't having too much fun while G90 did well.

Wow, this game looks like its surprisingly CPU limited. They all top out at around 55-60fps average regardless of resolution.

I'd like to see a graph of the frame times on a few of those cards.

not bad at 1600x1200, closest res to my 1680x1050

I see they're using an core 2 duo E8400 at 3Ghz... that's probably why there is a CPU limitation.

They do mention that GPU physx is disabled. I didn't even know this game supported GPU accelerated physics. Does anyone know if it offers a performance boost?

Something's wrong with the 9800GX2 results.

Yeah, they mentioned that in the review. The GX2 drivers are broken.

Big surprise there. :lol:
