Wolfenstein was a little harder to test accurately, as we didn't use a time demo. Rather, using FRAPS, we did a walkthrough of the "Manor" multiplayer map. It is near impossible to manually follow the same path while doing the exact same thing at certain points, and therefore you will see much more fluctuation in the results.
The GeForce GTX 480 and Radeon HD 5870 graphics cards delivered virtually the same results in our test. The average frames per second of the GeForce GTX 480 were slightly higher, while the Radeon HD 5870 delivered a slightly better minimum frame rate.
Also, the Radeon HD 5850 was only slightly faster than the GeForce GTX 470 when measuring average frame rates, while the minimum was considerably higher delivering 21% more performance.
