Default Re: Far Cry2 DX10 Performance , GTX 4X0 and HD 5870

Desperate enough to edit the pictures to make a card look better.....I also saw the original pictures and one was set in ultra mode(HD5870) and the other run was in optimal mode,with some settings at high(supposedly the GTX480).

Someone from Beyond3D forum confirmed Far Cry 2 benchmarks ran on GTX 470, not GTX 480. GTX 470 scored 40 fps and 5870 scored 32 fps.

Obviously NV winning must mean cheating Right?

They also mentioned that it was GTX 470 in the thread .. , after I posted the pictures I saw that GTX 4X0 results had an "Optimal" Quality setting instead of "Ultra" and scored 44 FPS .. I rechecked the source thread and found out that they updated the picture with the "Ultra Quality" and the GTX 4X0 score decreased to 40 FPS !


Silly season began...

Cherry picking benchmarks at 2560x1600 with 8xAA so as the 5870(512MB less onboard memory than GTX480) runs out of memory isnt really helping to paint a fair picture.I'm sorry but I cant fall for this kind of trickery!

Maybe a test against the 5870 2GB Eyefinity would be better.

You're behind the times fanboy, they had to edit the pictures because the first test had them on different settings, lower settings on the 470. Also, it should be pointed out that at 2560x1600 with 8xAA the ATI card runs OOM and has to HDD swap, but the GTX 470 just barely doesn't, skewing the results. Lets see the same thing at 1920x1200? Oh they won't let you? Can't imagine why...
