Review: Silent and fast






Dirt 2

Dirt 2 is one of the games which use DirectX 11 capabilities to some extent. At 1920x1200, the GTX 480 beats Radeon HD 5870 by about 20%, whereas 2560x1600 sees the difference melt to 7%, both with and without AA. Club3D HD 5870 Overclocked Edition again outperforms the reference card by about 2%. Although this advantage isn’t enough to secure you bragging rights, note that Club3D card was much quieter than the rest of the pack. In fact – compared to the other two cards on our test it ran virtually silent.

Metro 2033

Metro 2033 is post-apocalyptic game developed by 4A Game and implements a number of advanced DX11 features with the latest generation of DX11 graphics cards. The GTX 480 takes the cake but the difference between the cards is not that large. At 1680x1050 and 1920x1200, the GTX 480 wins by about 18%. The Club3D HD 5870 OC Edition scores only slightly higher than the reference card.
