AXLE GT 240 and GT 220 tested - 5. Gaming: Left 4 Dead, World in Conflict

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Reference clocks with non-reference Arctic Cooling










Left 4 Dead

As we already noted in Futuremark test results, the 9800GT is much better in gaming tests despite the fact that they almost run on par in synthetic Vantage tests.

AXLE GT240/220 cards run similarly to Gainward's offer. The GT220 will provide pleasant gaming in Left 4 Dead, whereas the GT240 can spin this game at 1680x1050 with antialiasing and still churn out nice and playable framerate.

Again, Gainward has the upper hand due to its overclock.

AXLE GT240 scores about 60% better than AXLE GT220 card.

World in Conflict

World in Conflict is a tough nut to crack for the GT220, so you should try with lower detail settings. The GT240 however, shows that it can provide for some nice gaming. The Geforce 9600 features 384MB of memory, which is the main reason for the low results when antialiasing is turned on.

AXLE GT 240 512MB GDDR5 scores more than 70% better than AXLE GT 220 1020MB GDDR3 card.

Far Cry 2

Just like in the rest of the tested games, AXLE GT240 512MB GDDR5 is about 60% better than the GT220. In FarCry 2, Gainward's overclock on the GT240 helps the card score up to 12% better results than AXLE GT240, which runs at reference clocks. Still, no GT240 has what it takes to compete with Geforce 9800GT.
