Mass Effect 2

Electronic Arts’ space-faring RPG is our Unreal Engine 3 game. While it doesn’t have a built in benchmark, it does let us force anti-aliasing through driver control panels, giving us a better idea of UE3’s performance at higher quality settings. Since we can’t use a recording/benchmark in ME2, we use FRAPS to record a short run.

With Mass Effect 2 we’re looking at a fairly typical scenario. The 6970 holds a slight-to-no lead on the GTX 570, while the 6950 sits between the GTX 570 and the 5870. As one of the only DX9 games still in our benchmark suite we’d expect the 6900 series to take a hit due to the shader overhaul, but either that’s not the case or it’s masking better performance.

    Is it just me or are all the graphs missing? Reply

    They're not missing. They're fashionably late.

    In all seriousness though, they're going up now. We had less than a week to cover all of this, so it's very much down to the wire here.

    They're still missing in some of the non-benchmark pages including the "Enhanced Quality AA". Reply

    It's you. The graphs are drawn in infrared. Your fault you can't see them :) Reply

    They all look fine to me. Surely you aren't trying to use an NVidia card to read a favorable article about AMD? Reply

    Err, did you even read the article?! Reply

    In their defense, you can't have read the whole article that fast :-P Reply

    Doesn't look to me like the HD6970 is worth $70 more than the HD6950 at this time.

    Hopefully for AMD/ATI's sake, drivers updates will catapult it ahead.
