Review: Pre-overclocked gaming goodness










World in Conflict

World in Conflict sees the XFX HD 5850 Black Edition card outpacing the reference card by up to 6%, but the difference is again most evident when the GPU is working hard. It’s worth noting that XFX HD 5850 allows for pleasant World in Conflict gaming at all resolutions, including our highest tested resolution 2560x1600.

Dirt 2

Dirt 2 is a DirectX 11 game and it’s one mean looking game, especially if you use Eyefinity, i.e. gaming on three monitors. Unfortunately, we don’t have three monitors to try out all that XFX HD 5850 Black Edition has to offer, but we can confirm that 2560x1600 will allow for pleasant gaming as the HD 5850 Black Edition scores almost 50 fps in such scenarios. Compared to the reference HD 5850, XFX Black Edition scores 6% better.
