Controversial, and definitely one of the bigger titles of 2008. Mass Effect from BioWare. Originally released for the XBOX 360 it unveiled a vast, beautiful galaxy populated by diverse, fascinating alien races. Players stepped onto this stage as Commander Shepard, a hero at the vanguard of humanity's ascension in the arena of galactic politics, and thus began an epic story bolstered by engaging characters and rich, branching dialogue.
Set 200 years in the future in an epic universe, Mass Effect places gamers in a vast galactic community in danger of being conquered by a legendary agent gone rogue. A spectacular new vision from legendary developers BioWare, Mass Effect challenges players to lead a squad of freedom fighters as they struggle against threatening armies to restore peace in the universe.
I started playing this game last year when released, it's rare for me... but I spent all my free time on it and finished the game. What a great title Mass Effect is. The game however does not support AA. Despite that, it does show really awesome graphics, complex facial animations and applies a noise filter just to get you that really nice cinematic feeling. Overall one of the better games I've played in 2008. Definitely pick it up.
Mass Effect Settings:
Noise Filter on
Textures: Extreme high
Everything maxed out
Again we see leading performance. 2560x1600 manages to average out at ~67 frames per second, pretty nice.
When we compare the brand among each other surprisingly enough we see the best results in the lowest measured resolution.
Multi-GPU performance, it's getting a little repetitive, but that fact alone shows how steady Multi-GPU gaming seems to be with the NVIDIA products. We had no issues whatsoever.
