ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 Launch Review

Dead Space 2 - DirectX 9

One of the newest games in our test suite, Dead Space 2, is a fantastically scary and hugely entertaining sequel from EA. Based on the engine first used in the most recent Godfather game the developers have worked hard to deliver a gorgeous looking theatre of nightmares.

Testing was performed at 1920x1080 and 5760x1080 with all in game settings at their maximum level.

Dead Space 2 is an impressive looking game which is surprising considering the age of the engine and the use of older technology allows our cards to excel in this test. Each of them provides us with great framerates and while the Radeon 6990 is completely playable at both 5760x1080 and 1920x1080 the GTX 590 offers even better framerates throughout.

This is how the game looks at our tested settings.
