Resident Evil 5

The game is the seventh installment in the Resident Evil survival horror series, and was released on March 5, 2009 in Japan and on March 13, 2009 in North America and Europe for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A Windows version of the game was released on September 15, 2009 in North America, September 17 in Japan and September 18 in Europe. Resident Evil 5 revolves around Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar as they investigate a terrorist threat in Kijuju, a fictional town in Africa.

Left 4 Dead was tested at 1680×1050/2560×1600 with 8x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering.


Resident Evil 5 is another game which the Gigabyte GTX 275 Super Overclock has no trouble running at 2560×1600, even with 4x anti-aliasing. At this exceptionally high resolution we have framerates hitting 86 and an average of 57 which is great.

3D Vision Experience
Like Batman this game is also 3D Vision Ready although we are informed when launching that it is best to disable motion blur. When playing there is plenty of depth to the environment and onscreen text is crisp and clear as the level “nearest” to us. We did however notice some issues with ingame cut-scenes and the main menu which were not always correctly picked up as 3D, instead rendering as a stereo image (like seeing double). Once again the great minimum framerates of our GTX 275 Super Overclock allowed us to play this game and remain above 30fps at all times.

      Hi John, this card was released before DirectX11, so officially it is/was a DirectX 10 card. Having said that, any game which is designed for DirectX11 should run on this just with reduced visual functionality on any DX11 aspect. If you are thinking about buying one, I couldn’t recommend that though. The card is no longer prioritised by NVIDIA for driver updates and there are newer cards with better features, performance and support.
