Review: It's DirectX 11 time
 

Far Cry 2

At 2560x1600 and antialiasing on, the Sapphire HD 5870 spews out 46fps. Although the HD 5870 loses to the GTX 295 by 26%, it manages to beat the dual-GPU HD 4870 X2 at a couple of resolutions.

Batman Arkham Asylum

This is a new game which takes gaming to another level - the graphics looks simply stunning and it makes use of Nvidia's Physx technology. Unfortunately, we had no time to include this game in the results. Sapphire's HD 5870 allowed for smooth gaming, and we played with it for a few hours changing the settings and resolutions. We think it will be interesting to see how AMD copes with Nvidia's new favorite game, so we will post some results soon.
