World In Conflict
The 9800 GX2 does quite well when running World In Conflict using our test scene, which was taken from the game's last and most demanding level. Beside its superior performance compared to the 3870 X2 without antialiasing (the performance difference is only 9% at 1920x1200, which jumps to 64% at 2560x1600), it also supports antialiasing at 1920x1200, where it's 31% faster than the 8800 Ultra. The performance is not earth shattering at 2560x1600, though, as the 9800 GX2's 512 MB of memory hurts its perfomance even more than the 3870 X2's limited memory does. This is a recurring problem with the GeForce line and NVIDIA needs to work on it.
