AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition & 7850 Video Card ReviewSun, Mar 04, 2012 - 11:05 PM
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the third game in the Deus Ex first-person role-playing video game series, and a prequel to the original game. Announced on May 27, 2007, Human Revolution was developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix. It was released in August 2011. Human Revolution contains elements of first-person shooters and role-playing games, set in a near-future where corporations have extended their influence past the reach of global governments. The game follows Adam Jensen, the security chief for one of the game’s most powerful corporations, Sarif Industries. After a devastating attack on Sarif’s headquarters, Adam is forced to undergo radical surgeries that fuse his body with mechanical augmentations, and he is embroiled in the search for those responsible for the attack.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution uses a modified Crystal Dynamics Crystal game engine, which some of you might know as the game engine from the last Tomb Raider game title. The game developers did some rather hefty modifications to this engine though as the graphics are superb in this title.
Benchmark Results: The AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition was looking really good in Deus Ex: Human Revolution as it was slightly slower than the ASUS MATRIX GeForce GTX580 and faster then the Radeon HD 6970 and the GeForce GTX 570. AMD said that the Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition card would fall between the GTX580 and the GTX570 in most benchmarks and we see the first example of that here. The AMD Radeon HD 7850 was no slouch though as it performed on the same level as an overclocked Radeon HD 5870 and was a smidgen faster than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
