Call of Duty 4
Call of Duty 4 (DirectX 9)
Call of Duty 4 is the next iteration of the very popular CoD series and is a return of the Infinity Ward team that made CoD1 and CoD2 so successful. The graphics for this title are simply amazing, and considering that it is still a DX9 graphics engine, developers of these DX10 titles we use should be shamed! If you want a great single and multi-player experience set in a modern warfare environment, don’t pass up Call of Duty 4.

The RV770 is really shining here as we compare it to the previous generation of AMD cards – even the HD 4850 is able to compete head to head against the Radeon HD 3870 X2!
Though the HD 4870 512MB can’t quite keep up with the GT200-based GTX 280 card, it does very well in our testing here. The CrossFire configuration does scale well too, coming it at 70% at 2560×1600!
Looking at the HD 4850 CrossFire results in Call of Duty 4 reveals some great scaling once we get out of the 1600×1200 resolution and towards the higher end screens. At 2560×1600 we get as high as 80% better frame rates!
