DX11: Sniper Elite V2
Sniper Elite V2 is the eagerly-awaited sequel to the highly-acclaimed Sniper Elite, giving gamers the most authentic World War II sniping experience available. Sniper Elite V2 is a third-person shooter that stresses employing stealth, rather than using brute force. Fairburne uses several WWII-era weapons, including sniper rifles, a silenced Welrod pistol, sub-machine guns and German and Soviet hand grenades (which can be also used to make tripwire booby traps).
One of the main features of the title is the realistic ballistics, involving factors such as bullet drop, wind strength, and the effect of holding one's breath when attempting a shot. Sniping gameplay is from a first person scope view, whereas movement and use of all other weapons is in third person view.
Sniper Elite V2 is a new DX11 addition to the benchmark suite. We'll only test at 1920x1200, but apply a very high level of image quality. Overall our settings require 1300 MB of graphics memory, here are other settings used:
- Feature Level: DX11.0
- Texture Detail: ULTRA
- Shadows Detail: ULTRA
- Draw Distance: ULTRA
- Anti-aliasing: HIGH
- Advanced Shadows: HIGH
- Supersampling: 2.25x
- Anisotropic Level: 16
- Compute Shaders: ON
- Ambient Occlusion: ON
- Motion Blur: ON
Sniper Elite V2 is part of AMDs Gaming Evolved program which is an equivalent to the The Way it's Meant to be Played program from NVIDIA. As such AMD card should do really well in this title.
The Ultra settings used really cripple game performance, but gives us the image quality you may expect from a PC game. There are some NVIDIA and there are AMD titles. AMD from the very beginning has been really pushing this title, and we can see why. AMD's Radeon 7000 series perform really well. In fact the R7970 GHz edition takes a good lead here.
Over time more and more results will be added of course.
We test and review the MSI Radeon HD 7790 OC edition, also known under SKU code R7790-1GD5-OC incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming.

The Gigabyte HD7790 OC 2GB clocks in at 1075 MHz on the boost engine, packed with totally silent custom cooling.
Radeon HD 7990 review
We review the new AMD Radeon HD 7990 including FCAT frametime measurements. The dual GPU product that you guys learned to know under codename Malta finally is released. AMD it doing it in style, two fully equipped Tahiti XT2 GPUs versus good yet silent cooling. In this review we'll look at the product, the architecture, the benchmarks, including frametime based FCAT measurements. Head on over towards our AMD Radeon HD 7990.
Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker review
We test and review the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker, this is the much discussed 7870 card that in fact has a 7900 series GPU, the Tahiti LE. For a fair amount of money this series 7800 product now offers 7900 series performance. Armed with 2GB of graphics memory it hits a sweet spot gaming performance wise and to date it one of the more popular products in the mainstream segment. Let's check out the Club3D Radeon HD 7870 Joker.
