Performance Testing (cont’d)
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X (DirectX 10)
An action-flight simulator game, H.A.W.X offers great visuals with easy flying mechanics and gameplay.
Resident Evil 5 (DirectX 10)
The fifth installment of the incredibly popular survival horror game has finally come to the PC and is more impressive looking than ever.
World in Conflict (DirectX 10)
An incredibly detailed RTS game, World in Conflict allows you to look at your troops from a bird’s eye view as well as zooming to street level to get hands on with the combat. As you get closer, the game only looks better, as the scaling detail is incredible making this title an easy pick for DX10 benchmarking.
The GF108-based GeForce GT 430 is definitely a better card for this segment than the GT 220 ever was and the rest of our benchmarks clearly show that. The gaming capability of the Fermi architecture is just better, period. That being said, the GT 430 has a tough time with the Radeon HD 5570/5550 cards from AMD even a year or so after their initial release. NVIDIA is not targeting gaming performance with this release of course but we would still have liked to see NVIDIA take the lead this late in the generation.
