NVIDIA’s GeForce GTS 450: Pushing Fermi In To The Mainstreamby Ryan Smith on September 13, 2010 12:02 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.
Like HAWX, Mass Effect 2 is one of the GTS 450’s best games. Here it’s in a dead heat with the Radeon HD 5770 and leaves the 5750 in the dust. With overclocking taken in to account and it can approach the 60fps threshold at 1680 with 4x anti-aliasing. 1920 is also playable, but 37fps may not be the best choice for this game.
