Battlefield 2142

Battlefield 2142 (DirectX 9)


Battlefield 2142 is the sequel to the extremely popular Battlefield 2.  It uses some much more detailed shaders yet still provides the same wide-open areas for fighting that the BF series is known for.

SLI performance on Battlefield 2142 is somewhat limited it would seem: at 1280×960 we see 28% and 15% scaling on the 8600 GTS and 8600 GT cards and at 1600×1200 we saw 33% and 25% scaling respectively.  That means that by adding the second card to the system, we are only seeing 15-33% better performance over a single GPU working.  Obviously, that performance gain doesn’t really justify the additional cost of a second card.  Maybe some other titles will improve the outlook.
