Age of Conan Performance
This is one of a couple games where we saw the Radeon HD 4870 perform very strongly in the first place. The additional RAM actually boosts performance to more than that of the GTX 280. In fact, the 1GB 4870 is a little more than 14% faster than the GTX 280 at 2560x1600. For the way I play MMOs, 25 frames per second is just at playable, and running at native resolution is worth the trade off in framerate. But that's a very subjective thing, and others may prefer to drop back to 1920x1200 on this title.
