1920x1200 - Gaming Performance

At 1920x1200 (which will see similar performance to the full HD 1080p resolution) we find that there are quite a number of graphics cards that couldn’t reach an average 60fps. Starting from the bottom, the GeForce GT 240 is still unable to deliver playable performance, while the GeForce 9800 GT is also out of its depth.

The Radeon HD 5670 performed poorly as did the old Radeon HD 4890 and 4850 graphics cards. The GeForce GTS 450 matched the average frame rate of the Radeon HD 5770, though with 49fps each this is hardly desirable performance. The GeForce GTX 260 was right about on the limits of what we’d like to play Call of Duty: Black Ops at.

Meanwhile, the Radeon HD 5830 and GeForce GTX 275 delivered roughly the same performance with over 60fps on average each. The Radeon HD 5850 and GeForce GTX 285 were also neck and neck with 74fps on average.

Interestingly, the GeForce GTX 460 was found to be faster than both the Radeon HD 5870 and 6870 graphics cards. In fact the GeForce GTX 460 was able to beat AMD’s latest Radeon HD 6870 by a respectable 10% margin. The Radeon HD 5970 overtook the GeForce GTX 480, but the new GTX 580 retained the performance crown at this resolution.
