Three Factory-Overclocked, High-End Graphics Cards

Benchmark Results: Crysis

At 1920x1080, Crysis is showing us a very tight playing field here. The GeForce cards have a slight advantage in this title, though the factory overclocks don't seem to be doing that much. The average performance does seem to reflect a trend inline with the relative overclocks, though.

At the high 2560x1600 resolution, the playing field is even tighter. The Zotac AMP! edition card offers the best performance with a minimum frame rate that comes relatively close to 30 FPS.

    Good to see sensible conclusions, bang for the buck.

    Amazing how well the ATI cards are doing given their time on the market.

    I'm not liking the trend of these cards consuming more and more pci slots to be honest.

    So, the conclusion is that the only good point about those factory overclocked cards are their coolers...

    Aliens vs. Predator favors the Radeons, just like Crysis favors the GeForce cards. However, the playing field remains very close
    The graphs tell otherwise.

    It's a shame the Big Green has paid off so many game developers that we'll never see a 'true' comparison between ATI & nVidia
