Review: Silent and fast






Far Cry2

Club3D HD 5870 OC Edition card scores only slightly better than the reference HD 5870, which can be attributed to the card’s 875MHz clock (reference clock is 850MHz). Nvidia’s new high-end card is especially fast in FarCry 2 and the reference Radeon HD 5870 lags behind by as much as 50% when 8xAA is turned on. The advantage ducks to 36% with 4xAA and to about 16% with no AA at 2560x1600 and at 1920x1200 the advantage stands at 26%.

Crysis

In this case, Gainward GTX 480 is on par with the reference Radeon HD 5870, whereas Club3D is about 2% faster.
