XFX Radeon 6970 and 6950
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Call of Duty: Black Ops is the latest installment in the famous first person shooter franchise, taking you back to the action through Cold War and Vietnam campaigns. Based on the developer’s proprietary engine, the game is shader-intensive and features beautiful DX9 graphics, striking lighting and contrasts, and dynamic shadows. Black Ops allows much higher antialising than in previous CoD games, so we’ve cranked it up to the maximum at 16xAA.
As we can see, Black Ops loves Nvidia cards overall, and the XFX cards don’t have quite the prowess as the synthetic tests. Sitting near the middle of the pack at the medium resolution, the 6950 and 6970 both take a jump when moving to the high resolution, as the 2GB of GDDR5 memory does seem to help in response to the Nvidia cards. Both XFX 6900 cards can easily chew through this game engine with all the eye candy cranked up to maximum, even at 1920 resolution.
