Shift 2 is based on the cross-platform Madness Engine which also powered the original Shift. This latest version adds tweaks for enhanced realism when compared to the older game.
Testing was performed at 1920×1080 and maximum in game settings were enabled.
Shift 2 was released last week and it is always interesting to see how new games perform as they can often be the titles which have bugs or glitches, even on the latest drivers. In the case of this game both cards had perfect IQ with performance which was completely smooth and playable. The GeForce has the edge in this title for average and maximum framerates however we did note that the 6790 was reasonably close on minimum framerate.
Here is how the game looks at our tested settings.
