Call of Juarez

Call of Juarez (DirectX 10)


Call of Juarez is one of the most visually impressive games I have come across in some time.  Set in the Wild West time frame, this game puts a bit of a spin on the classic FPS style with some slowdown effects as well as playing characters that are essentially against one another.

The main DX10-based options here are the “enhanced quality” here at the very bottom as well as the shader model set at 4.0 above.

Once more, to sound like a broken record, the move from the 7.9 driver to the 7.10 driver shows us no gains in performance for Call of Juarez though the HD 2900 XT is still powerful enough to outperform the single 8800 GTS 640MB card.

Call of Juarez was one of the few games that AMD actually had good CrossFire scaling performance with the 7.9 driver, but the 7.10 driver improves on it ever so slightly.  With a nearly 9% frame rate increase, AMD’s HD 2900 XT is still a slightly faster option than the 8800 GTS 640MB.
