Benchmarks: Call of Duty, Company of Heroes

The Call of Duty World at War results were very competitive at 1680x1050 and 1920x1200 as the GeForce GTX 275 was just 4% faster. This is equivalent to just 2fps at 1680x1050 and 3fps at 1920x1200, given we are looking at average frame rates above 70fps, it is close enough to call it even.

The 2560x1600 results are more surprising, as the Radeon HD 4890 which carries more memory on-board was 16% slower than the GTX 275. This worked out to be a ~9fps difference, which is more critical when looking at average frame rates around 50fps and below.

When testing Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts with the highest possible in-game quality settings, the results look to favor the GeForce GTX 275. The Radeon HD 4890 was 26% slower at 1680x1050, and things did not improve much at higher resolutions, trailing the GeForce GTX 275 by a 22% margin at 1920x1200 and 2560x1600.

These particular settings tend to favor Nvidia-based graphics cards, but we use them because they are the best image quality settings for this particular title.
