Three Factory-Overclocked, High-End Graphics Cards

Benchmark Results: World In Conflict

World in Conflict delivers solid performance across all of the cards, and while the minimum frame rate drops below 30, we need to keep in mind that a real-time strategy game doesn't need the same fluid frame rates as a first person shooter.

While the GeForce cards show an average frame rate advantage, the minimum frame rates are just as competitive on the Radeon models. The Super Clocked Gigabyte Radeon HD 5870 manages the highest minimum frame rate in this title, almost achieving 30 FPS.

At 2560x1600, the minimum frame rates are almost identical across the board. The slight advantage in average frame rates demonstrated by the GeForce GTX 480 cards is less impressive, but the factory-overclocked Zotac AMP! edition card does boast a notable advantage here.

    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.

    Did your lights flickered when you powered up that GTX480 ? :)

    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
