Call of Duty 2
Call of Duty 2 (Direct X)
Call of Duty was the best selling FPS of 2003 and Call of Duty 2 looks to continue that tradition with a great game style and supurb graphics. Below are the graphical settings we used in our testing.
**Optimize for SLI is enabled in all of our testing!
The first mission was used in its entirety as the benchmark.
Once again, just as with BF2, Call of Duty 2 falls under the “D3D limitation” category and we are forced to look at Quad SLI performance against the 7950 GX2 single card only in terms of higher image quality. Looking at the numbers though, the Quad SLI setup is nearly on par with the single 7950 GX2 card that is running 4xAA in-game settings versus the Quad SLI running with 8xSLIAA enabled in the driver. In both cases though, playing at 2560×1600 wasn’t really a viable option as frame rates were very low; 1920×1200 would be a good resolution for CoD2 if you have a widescreen monitor.
Looking at 7900 GTX SLI and Quad SLI configurations running 8xSLIAA, the Quad configuration is much faster in all cases with as much as a 35% difference between the two in average frame rate.
