Crysis And Far Cry 2

Mobile GeForce GTX Graphics: Model Inflation Gone Awry

Game benchmark resolutions were previously chosen based on previous articles.

The GeForce GTX 280 desktop graphics card produces better frame rates at today’s highest tested resolution than the GTX 280M achieves at today’s lowest tested resolution. Neither solution is truly playable at Very High detail levels, though previous overclocking evaluations have shown that the entire results graph can be pushed upward at higher CPU speeds.

Far Cry shows a lead of over 50% for the real GTX 280, while the "underclocked GeForce 8800 GTS" (so enthusiastically named GeForce GTX 280M) falls short of playability when detail levels are increased.
