We'll do things simple in this article and focus on two things really. First the performance difference in-between the R7950 and the R7950 with Boost. And obviously this card was introduced smack down in the middle of the GeForce GTX 660 Ti release, so we'll include that one as well. All cards run reference clocks by the way.
DX9: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Modern Warfare 2 is set five years on from COD4 and brings a new villain into town: Vladimir Makarov. All the trouble start when Makarov frames the US for a terrorist attack on a Russian airport (yes, the infamous airport level). The rest of the story follows the same intertwined British and US mission format as before, and the missions are all incredible set-pieces that involve storming oil rigs, climbing icy cliffs and, of course, an adrenaline packed snowmobile chase. Visually the 3D engine seems to be the same as the COD4 one, it's tweaked and nearly abused to push out the very best of its capability. The result is a very decent looking game really, smoke, fog, sun, vegetation detailed texturing of objects, buildings and characters.
Our image quality settings selected are the most complex you can set in-game. 4x AA, maxed out anisotropic filtering, the best textures, everything is enabled to its maximum capability. Any decent graphics card can run the game, it's that simple. There's no need to give in to lower quality settings.
Image Quality setting:
- Level: Contingency
- 4x Anti-Aliasing
- 16x Anisotropic Filtering
- All settings maxed out
What you'll notice that in-between the R7950 with Boost and the GTX 660 Ti there are wins and losses for both parties involved amonsgt the benchmarks we'll show you.
We test and review the PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 today. This stock clocked Radeon HD 7850 is cooled passively, meaning it has no fans tool it down. That also means it's rather silent as it does not make any noise. But what about temperatures then you must be wondering ?
