Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
Although we only tested two resolutions for this roundup – 1920×1080 and 2560×1600 – we found that two cards stuck out a bit in terms of performance. The most notable was the the Zotac card with its highest default clock speeds, and the only one with overclocked memory speeds out of the box. With more memory bandwidth than any other GPU, it actually sees a 7% performance advantage over the slowest of the four cards!
