Test Drive Unlimited
With Test Drive Unlimited, there was no doubt as to the superiority of the new high-end Nvidia card, even though the 9800 GX2 stayed close (less than 8% behind at the first three resolutions, and 17% at the highest). Another piece of good news for the manufacturer is that the superiority of the GTX 280 was evident from 1920*1200 up, with performance twice as good as the 9800 GTX (with filters enabled, of course). Oddly, moving up to 30" didn’t accentuate that lead, but reduced it – but it was still 50% without filters and 76% with. As for the GTX 260, its lead over the 8800 Ultra at the same resolution also dropped, to 11% on average.
