Map: Shangri La Performance (cont’d)
The gap between the 320MB 8800 GTS card and the 8600 GTS and HD 2600 XT is even wider here thanks to the wide open map layout of Shangri La. Both of the two mid-range cards are on the edge of what I could call a good game play experience and moving down a step in resolution or IQ settings is probably recommended.
Obviously here the 8600 GTS and HD 2600 XT aren’t going to give you a smooth frame rate with the averages at about 20 FPS. The 8800 GTS 320MB still has a great result though and looks like it could be the best price/performance on UT3 so far.
