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.

GeForce 7950 GT and ATI X1900 XT 256MB: XFX and BFG Models - Graphics Cards 59

**Optimize for SLI is enabled in all of our testing!

The first mission was used in its entirety as the benchmark.

At 1600×1200 and 1920×1200, the ATI X1900 XT and the NVIDIA 7950 GT cards are performing about even with each other, with a slight lead going to the ATI card.  Moving up to 2560×1600 though seems to drop kick the X1900 XT 256MB card Norris-style: it drops to single digit frame rates!  The lack of a larger frame buffer here is surely killing the card’s performance.

Again, SLI on the 7950 GT cards is impressive: nearly 80% at 2560×1600 and 69% at 1600×1200!  While Call of Duty 2 definitely has some CPU limitations on it, it is obvious that addtional GPU power can be used on it.
