Benchmarks: Battlefield Bad Company 2, Metro 2033
Again we find that the Inno3D GTX 480 iChill is just 3% faster than a standard GeForce GTX 480 when testing with factory clock speeds with Battlefield Bad Company 2 at 2560x1600.
Running this card without tinkering further is such a waste, so moving forward we are mostly paying attention to our own overclocking settings. In this test it provided far more impressive results, booting the average frame rate to 38fps, a 19% increase. This allowed the GTX 480 iChill Black Series to match the Radeon HD 5870 in this game.
The GTX 480 iChill Black Series fared well when testing Metro 2033. The overclocked card was a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 295 and the overclocked MSI R5870 Lighting.
