NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 560 Ti: Upsetting The $250 Marketby Ryan Smith on January 25, 2011 9:00 AM EST
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.
Finally we once again have a close race to look at with Mass Effect 2. The 6950 1GB does enjoy a 7% lead at 1920, while this lead largely evaporates at 1680. The 5870 comparison once again seems appropriate though, as at the same resolution the GTX 560 is practically tied. Meanwhile at the same resolution we’re looking at one of the smaller leads the GTX 560 enjoys over the GTX 460 1GB, bagging only a 23% lead – roughly in line with the clockspeed increase. This makes it likely that we’re ROP limited, at least at this resolution.
