GeForce GTX 280 vs GeForce 9800 GX2

Posted on Tuesday, June 17 2008 @ 13:41:24 CEST by

VR Zone has published another review of the new GeForce GTX 280 to see how this card performs against the GeForce 9800 GX2 in high resolutions. People don't buy a $649 card to play at 1280 x 1024 so the site mainly focused on 1680 x 1050, 1920 x 1200 and 2560 x 1600.

At 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200 the GeForce GTX 280 is not much faster than a GeForce 9800 GX2 but when you crank up the resolution to 2560 x 1600 on a 30" LCD display you really see the raw performance this beast has to offer.

Here's a quick overview of how much better the GeForce GTX 280 is in 2560 x 1600 in various games:
  • Enemy Territory: Quake Wars (High Quality): 28.8%
  • Crysis (High Quality): 709%
  • Crysis (Very High Quality): 820% (but still unplayable!)
  • World in Conflict (High Quality): 51.85%
  • World in Conflict (Very High Quality): 270%
  • UT3 (DM_Shangrila Flyby | 4x AA, 16x AF | Level 5): 75.3%
  • This is just a short wrapup, for the full review and test notes you have to head over here.
