Battlefield 2 - The plot follows the four soldiers of Bad Company as they track down a "new" super weapon in development by Russian forces. You might not immediately get that this game is about Bad Company, as the intro mission starts off with a World War II raid, but it all links together in the end.
Next to being a great game for gameplay, remains an awesome title to test both, graphics cards and processors. The game has native support for DirectX 11 and on the processor testing side of things, parallelized processing supporting two to eight parallel threads, which is great if you have a quad core processor.
We opt to test DX11 solely for this title as we want to look at the most modern performance and image quality. DX11 wise we get as extras, softened dynamic shadows and shader based performance improvements. A great game to play, a great game image quality wise. We raise the bar, image quality settings wise:
DirectX 11 enabled
8x Multi-sample Anti-aliasing
16 Anisotropic filtering
All image quality settings enabled at maximum
Above we see performance scaling of this game with a variety of DX11 cards at 8xAA and 16xAF, 1920x1200. The card is definitely closer to the GXT 580 now, but still it has a handsome lead over it.
