Performance Recap

Here are the averages for each card and each game. Cards that can’t render a game at a given resolution or with antialiasing are given a zero, which heavily handicaps all cards with 512 MB of memory or less at 2560x1600 + antialiasing, as well as the Radeon HD 3870 X2, which can’t apply antialiasing with Mass Effect. Also note that the 4850 was at a disadvantage since our sample Asus card wasn’t able to render Race Driver: GRID, which raises the average scores for the other cards!
