The new kid has some nice tricks, all of which will stress a DX11 card to its max. Heavy duty shading, Direct Compute, and Bullet Physics all combine to beat the ever living… stuff out of modern GPUs. The Performance/720P preset was used in this test.
We actually see some nice separation between the older HD 5870, GTX 480, and the R6970. We also see the HD 5870 really struggle in Game Test 4 vs. the rest of the gang. The R6970 also does surprisingly well in the Physics Test and the Combined Test against the GTX 480, a card which has some pretty hefty compute abilities.
