ATI Radeon HD 3850 CrossFire Video Card ReviewThu, Nov 15, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Call of Juarez
Call of Juarez is a Western-themed first-person shooter from the Polish developer Techland. First released for Windows in 2006 as a DirectX 9 title, it was re-released on June 12, 2007 as a DirextX 10 game title. Call of Juarez was one of the first games to utilize Microsoft’s DirectX 10 and it is included in our testing for this reason. We have tested Call of Juarez before, but that was version 126.96.36.199 EN. Today, the performance results are from version 188.8.131.52 EN, which is a newer version with performance enhancements.
Benchmark Results:As you can see this benchmark pushes DirectX 10 graphics cards to the breaking point with high quality settings at 1280×1024 with 2xAA enabled. The Radeon HD 3850 more than double the performance level of the Radeon 2600XT, so we are off to a great start. When two Radeon HD 3850 graphics cards are paired in CrossFire the performance nearly doubled! The Call of Juarez game and benchmark has been supported by ATI since day one, so let’s take a look at some more games.
