Call of Duty: Black Ops – DirectX 9

Testing was performed at 1920×1080 with 4x anti-aliasing and maximum in-game settings.
When playing Call of Duty: Black Ops the GTX 570 and 6970 are again pretty close in performance with the Gigabyte card just edging ahead of the Sapphire model. The 6950 is a few frames behind the 6970 and manages to exceed the 5870 by 3fps on average framerate however the older card does have a small advantage on minimum framerate.

Today we take a look at this R9 290X2 to see what Powercolor can do with their custom design card in a selection of games including Battlefield 4 and GRID Autosport at 4K resolution.
