Benchmarks: Far Cry 2, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X
This is definitely the best showing we've seen from the GeForce GTX 480 so far. Running Far Cry 2 at 2560x1500 with 8xAA enabled, the card was a whopping 35% faster than the Radeon HD 5870 delivering 52fps on average. Moreover, it was also 6% faster than the Radeon HD 5970, and just 5% slower than a pair of Radeon HD 5870 cards in Crossfire.
The GeForce GTX 480 also performed nicely in Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X, with an average of 74fps at 2560x1600. This made it around 12% faster than the Radeon HD 5870, and was enough to match the performance of the 4870 X2.
