Gaming beyond Full HD with $300 cards

Posted on Sunday, August 24 2008 @ 23:06:54 CEST by

X-bit Labs published a test of the Radeon HD 4870 and GeForce GTX 260 to see how well you can game at 2560 x 1600 with $300 graphics cards.
This is all most important for AMD/ATI and Nvidia, but what about the end-user who wants to buy a high-quality product that would meet his ever-growing requirements? A few years ago 30-inch monitors with a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels were not only expensive but also required a very specific graphics subsystem consisting of two or even four GPUs to deliver high speed in video games. Today, 30-inch monitors are far more affordable and popular but installing a multi-GPU graphics subsystem in order to play at 2560x1600 still seems unhandy for many users.

Today, we will see if $300 graphics cards can deliver a playable frame rate in popular games at a resolution of 2560x1600 and with 4x FSAA (where possible). We’ll also describe the Radeon HD 4870 as it comes from the new Force3D brand.
