With the free of Treyarch’s new multiplayer man-shoot, we were interested to xepect how our ageing graphics boards fared in equivalence to the new pixel forcing behemoths such as the GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB.
A some days spent swapping cards in and out of our graphics try rigs and we had our solution; amazinglys well. Hit the following page to assure out the graphs, but needless to tell BLOPs does not look to be that requiring at all when it comes to Computer hardware; not so much of a surprise when you regard the game engine is little differ from that utilized in the actual Call of Duty: Latest Warfare, 4 years before.
At 1,680 x 1,050 with 0xAA it’s the high end ATI cards that conduct with mighty minimum frame rates of up to 85fps, with the GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB, 480 1.5GB and 470 1.3GB full obviously capped at an average frame rate of around 110 and a minimum of 78fps. Include some anti aliasing and the solution alters dramatically though, as the ATI cards drop away aggressively to leave the heavy hitting Fermi GPU founded cards lead of the heap.
Still at 1,920 x 1,200 with 0xAA the HD 5870 1GB stays top, and there are surprises elsewhere also. We too tried a GTX 260 768MB and got that it functioned so likewise to a GTX 460 768MB at 1,920 x 1,200 with 0xAA, contempt the large difference in theoretical Graphics processing unit processing power; clearly BLOPs, when AA is disenabled at least, is a memory hungry game first and foremost.
Changing 4xAA at 1,920 x 1,200, saw a more normal spread, with the GTX 580 on lead. Particularly surprising was the process of an ageing GTX 280 One GB, a 2.5 year elder card, which was capable to deliver a minimum and average frame rate of 53fps and 79 severally. Still the GTX 260 768MB handled a exactly playable minimum of 44fps. Again though, we saw the ATI cards decrease down the pecking order substantially when AA was changed, with an HD 6870 1GB hardly quicker than a GTX 460 One GB. BLOP’s engine only does not look to do ATI hardware any favors when you test and up the picture quality.
