Review: 40nm core and DirectX 10.1 support






Gaming


Far Cry 2

Gainward GT 220 beats the reference 9500 GT by more than 22% on all tested resolutions. Galaxy's 9500 GT holds up nicely and while it's clocked higher, it comes with less memory. Unfortunately, choosing maximum detail level in this game didn't allow for pleasant gaming, which means that the GT 220 is a card aimed at casual gamers who don't care for high detail settings, rather than hard-core gamers.

Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead sure knows how to value speed, and we see that Gainward GT 220 does really well. Even 1600x1200 with antialiasing and maximum detail settings results in a playable framerate. The reference Geforce 9500 GT ran from 20% to 29% slower than Gainward's GT 220.
