ASUS ENGTX570 DirectCU II Video Card ReviewMon, Nov 07, 2011 - 12:00 AM
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat utilizes the XRAY 1.6 Engine and DirectX 11 to provide massive photo realistic scenes of the regions. This benchmark utilizes real-time GPU tessellation. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. uses a heavily modified version of the ODE physics engine, supporting hundreds of physics objects on different levels. Ragdoll physics, destructible objects, and realistic bullet ballistics.
Once again we dialed up all the settings in order to push our ASUS graphics card.
At 38 FPS the ASUS GTX 570 DirectCU II can easily handle this game with everything set to maximum. The ASUS GTX 570 places just a hair behind the ATI 6970 in this benchmark with less than 1% between them but trails the EVGA Classified by 16% and 20%. The 6970 and this card continue to be neck and neck in both price and performance.
