Graphics (VGA) performance Recording Level and IQ settings
Before we begin with the graphics performance tests a little explanation. We use a time based measurement based upon the internal benchmark mode. The test is a representative yet stringent on the GPU, a great little benchmark to test in. Our settings:
For all our graphics performance tests we apply the Quality settigns as discussed at 2xMSAA / FXAA with all graphics quality settings set at HIGH. We confirmed that DX11 is activated.
The 20 graphics cards used are:
|GeForce GTX 650 Ti|
|GeForce GTX 560 Ti|
|GeForce GTX 660|
|GeForce GTX 480|
|GeForce GTX 660 Ti|
|GeForce GTX 580|
|GeForce GTX 670|
|GeForce GTX 680|
|GeForce GTX 690|
|Radeon HD 5770|
|Radeon HD 7770 (GHz)|
|Radeon HD 5850|
|Radeon HD 6950|
|Radeon HD 6970|
|Radeon HD 7850|
|Radeon HD 7870 (GHz)|
|Radeon HD 7950 (Boost)|
|Radeon HD 7970|
|Radeon HD 6990|
|Radeon HD 7970 (Boost)|
Each card runs on the same PC with the same operating system clone. GeForce cards use the latest 310.61 Beta driver and for AMD Radeon graphics cards we used the latest 12.11 Beta build 8 driver with the latest available CAP for multi-GPU support.
Our test setup is based on Intel X58 (MSI Big bang XPower) with 6 GB of DDR3 ( Corsair 1600 MHz) memory. The processor is a Core i7 965 clocked at 3750 MHz. This system is an equivalent to a Core i7 2600 K processor, to the frame precisely actually. We use Windows 7 64-bit SP1 all patched up.
Let's head onwards to the next page where we'll look at the 1280x768 and 1600x1200 monitor resolution performance first.
We review Hitman Absolution VGA Graphics benchmark performance and test roughly 20 graphics cards with it. The new and massively popular title is a great looking game. But how will it perform on a selection of different graphics cards ?
