At 1920x1200 we find that fewer graphics cards are able to deliver perfectly playable performance. There were a total of 13 graphics cards that slipped under the 60fps threshold, which is just over half the cards we tested with. Still, the Radeon HD 5830, 4890, 6850 and GeForce GTX 460 and GTX 275 all managed acceptable performance with average frame rates between 53fps and 58fps.
Those with budget graphics cards will either want to lower the resolution or reduce the quality settings to improve frame rates. It is interesting to note that the Radeon HD 6970 was only a fraction faster than the older HD 5870 in this title, while the HD 5850 matched the HD 6950. Moreover, the Radeon HD 5850 was faster than the HD 6870.
However in terms of value the GeForce GTX 560 Ti ranked quite well, while the cheaper Radeon HD 6870 with an average of 69fps was most impressive.
