Hardware Canucks is pleased to present their The Games of Christmas '08: GPU Performance Part 1 article. Part 1 covers high end GPU performance in some of this holiday season's most popular games while Part 2 will focus on the performance from more budget-minded cards.
Requirements and achievable performance may sound confusing but this is where we here at Hardware Canucks step in to help guide you in the right direction with this article. Here we will be focusing on GPU performance in a number of popular (and at least one not-so-popular) newly-released games. These are games which will probably be high on the shopping list of your favorite uncle who always buys you the cool stuff your parents don't want you to have.
