In this review we'll look at Far Cry 3 VGA Graphics benchmark performance with roughly 24 graphics cards. The new and popular title is looking great from a graphics point of view. But as a result how will it perform on a selection of different graphics cards ? This review will cover all these basics and then more so you know what choice to make either graphics card or in-game settings wise.

The popular Anno series has been ongoing for many years now always based on history. The franchise decided to jump to the future, 58 years ahead of time. For Anno 2070 the graphics engine has been updated, the game is now DirectX 11 compatible. And as such it is time to throw a couple of graphics cards (well we can't say that nineteen graphics cards are a couple really) at it to see how well the game performs with DX11 cards Anno 2012.
After waiting way too long before the game to be unlocked we wanted bring you guys one of our traditional graphics and processor performance articles. As such we'll take a card or ten today and have a look at DX11 performance with the newest graphics cards. We'll also show you the performance differential with a couple of different processors.
We have a look at Starcraft II Wings of Liberty GPU graphics performance. With no less than 13 graphics cards we see how well this soon to be released game behaves in terms of image quality and framerates.
Last week Codemasters released a two level playable demo allowing you to play the game on both DX9 and DX11 (if you have a Radeon HD series 5000 card that is). Also integrated is a benchmark mode, very handy. Now we'll not be using the standard benchmark yet our own scripted test run in the Ensenada Port circuit set in Baja California level where we can drive through sand, mud and water to measure the most prominent DX11 features like DX11 Hardware tessellation, Geometry instancing and displacement mapping -- plus obviously more complex shader usage. let's go check out both the DX9 and DX11 image quality and performance.
Last week the long awaited sequel to Call of Duty Modern Warfare was released -- COD Modern Warfare 2 probably has been one of the biggest anticipated PC game titles this year. This is Guru3D.com we have a fetish for graphics cards and games, as such we took no less than twenty-three graphics configurations and put performance to the test. Over the next few pages a word or two about the game, some image quality comparisons and obviously a nice lengthy VGA chart ranging from monitor resolution 1280x1024 up-to 2560x1600 measured with and with out AA.
In this article we look at VGA graphics performance and in game quality of the game Anno1404. We'll take 15 graphics cards to the test with this title and will show you what you can expect per graphics card and monitor resolution.
In this article we'll take a dozen of graphics cards and see how well they perform with UBISofts latest title, Tom Clancy HAWX. An amazingly looking fligh-simulator with an arcade element to it.
Left 4 Dead is a game about escaping from different places infested with Zombies. Today we'll look at the Left 4 Dead game and fire off 23 graphics cards at this title to see what performance we get returned, we'll throw in a little Multi-GPU results in there as well.
Here we test 16 graphics cards on performance with Call of Duty 5: World at War. Over the next pages we'll compare some images quality settings in-between ATI and NVIDIA, look at a couple of screenshots and then head onwards towards our benchmark test.
What we'll do today is what you can expect from a site like Guru3D.com, we take all modern GeForce and Radeon graphics cards, seek a nice image quality setting and report back to you what you can expect performance and quality wise from this bitching title. Seventeen cards versus 4 resolutions versus 3 runs per resolution. That's 204 benchmark runs ...
A VGA gaming performance test on Brothers in Arms - Hells Highway. Hells Highway is based on the Unreal III engine which allows some pretty decent graphics but more importantly, it'll be playable for a very wide scope of graphics cards, which we'll show you.
Sun rays burst through cracks in wooden roofs. Lightning lights up the night sky as well as dark interiors. It looks terrific and atmospheric, which is what S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is all about really. But how does it perform ? Guru3D takes 13 graphics cards and has a peek at performance.
After the success of Need for Speed Most Wanted, the gaming world was left to anticipate what would be next. The wait lasted a little less than one year and then the word on everyone's lips was Carbon. This installment reduces the role of the fine police department but introduces team management and much needed variation to your typical car racing game.

Being English, youd think I would be used to the rain by now, but every year, as the days draw in, become altogether gloomier and more depressing its easy to get frustrated (and wet!). It was on one such morning, that a package dropped onto the door mat. Eagerly unwrapping it, I stood staring at a gate into a world of devilry, sorcery, Orcs and villains. Ahhh.... I thought to myself... thats just perfect for a winter escape! So, in I jumped (well, actually I pressed the on button), readying myself for a heroic quest against all that is evil, and a self gratifying amount of time slaying foes by my bloodied sword... Orcs of the world beware!

Cyrodiil is a dangerous place, enter it with caution as it is in a dimension all of its own, where 5 hours seems like 10 minutes and an unexpected adventure lies around every corner. Each of these adventures is so compelling as to deprive you of the comfort of your own bed, offering some new interest. Whats more, the freedom of this game is staggering. Go buy and sell, do a few quests, some treasure hunting in one of the many caves or mines, explore the wonders of the land. The list goes on, and thats before you even touch on the main quest.
A hint at just how expansive this game is appears at the beginning with the fantastic character creation tools. I must have spent over half an hour or more playing around with every conceivable detail of my characters appearance and Im sure many others could spend far longer. It is also here that the story begins. With you, as seems to be traditional in Elderscrolls games, starting your journey in a prison cell. As luck would have it, the Emperor happens to be passing through for reasons I wont divulge here, and releases you from your captive state.

First off, who am I kidding, Im willing to bet that if you are a hard core gamer you have already played this game and you are only reading this to see if you agree with it or not. For those of you who havent played this yet, no matter if I said this was the worse game ever made, you will still go out and buy it. Why? Because its Quake and it has a history of being a game where the strong survives and blood and body parts fly. Very few developers other than id software can do this especially when one considers that it has been 6 years now since Quake III.

Last year when 3DMark 05 was released (February I think) it became the standard for DirectX 9 benchmarking and it was well received by the consumer and industry. In the months following I however honestly felt the benchmark was good but not yet perfect as some very important features where left out. 3DMark06 entails all the new features and we will take a brief look at this exciting new update of the software. I say update because in essence 3Dmark06 is 3Dmark05, with a complete overhaul of features and exciting end-result.

Developer Infinity Ward obviously doesnt believe in small things, but rather aims towards grand scale of epic proportions. The first Call of Duty did this for the most part with some of the most immense battles and a scale and level of intensity never before witnessed on a PC. This has helped set the Call of Duty series above the rest of the crowded World War II genre. Now, Infinity Ward have released their sequel. Something much bigger, more refined and hopefully much better.

The long awaited release of the newest installment to the Need for Speed (NFS) series is here and it most certainly does not disappoint. You have a glorious chance to become the Most Wanted (MW) and show both your peers and the law whose boss.

F.E.A.R. is the first notable attempt in a year at toppling the crown of valves epic Half-Life 2; a game that also seemed to have some similarities to busses where time keeping is concerned, although none at all when it comes to a rewarding experience. What we looked at then seemed extremely promising but have Monolith come up with a classic, and should we all be searching for a spare pair of pants?

As many of you will be aware, F.E.A.R (or First Encounter Assault & Recon for short) involves a rather mysterious looking girl in a red dress, a man with an unappetising taste for human flesh, and some rather flashy action set pieces al la' The Matrix. All of this is brought together by one of the best game engines around.
There has been a great amount of talk surrounding this game of late, and as we here at Guru 3d aim to please, it was decided we would take a quick pre-release look at both single player and multiplayer aspects of this game, with some preliminary testing and benchmark results, to give you an idea of just what to expect, and whether your brand spanking new 7800GTX will be just as scared of that Girl in the Red Dress as you!
