Inno3D GTX 560 Ti iChill FreezerXSeries vs PowerColor Radeon HD 6870 PCS++ Graphics Card Review

Dragon Age 2 - DirectX 11


Dragon Age 2 was released recently and features support for various DirectX 11 features including Contract Hardening Shadows (more realistic), DirectCompute bloom effects, high quality depth of field, tessellation for smoother terrain, prepass lighting (higher detail lighting) and HDAO for low resource, high quality ambient occlusion.

Testing was performed at 1920x1080 with 4x anti-aliasing, 16x anisotropic filtering and maximum in game settings.  The high resolution patch pack was also installed.

Since the release of Dragon Age 2 we have seen NVIDIA based cared struggle to compete with the competition from AMD however with the latest patches and drivers it seems those issues are behind us and we see the GTX 560 Ti outperform the 6870 at 1920x1080 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering.

Here is how the game looks at our tested settings.
