Diamond Radeon HD 3870 1GB GDDR3 Video Card ReviewTue, Apr 22, 2008 - 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 2560×1600. The Diamond 3870 1GB wasn’t able to improve performance any over the standard 3870, although it’s performing nearly identical the very best the single cards on the market.
