AMDZone has made a major update to their Call of Duty 2 benchmarks which show that 512MB cards finally matter. They have pit the top cards from ATI and Nvidia and you will be surprised at the outcome..
What is very interesting here is that the X800XL 512MB card at 1024x768 is less than two frames per second from the X850XT PE, which normally in other games the margin would be much higher. I believe here, for the first time, we are finally seeing a game that takes advantage of the 512MB of texture memory on the X800XL card and a penalty for a card without it.. Check it out over here.
