NVIDIA 3-Way SLI With GeForce 9800 GTX Graphics CardsTue, Apr 15, 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. Triple SLI shows great scaling in this benchmark with 4xAA, going from merely playable with a single card to a very enjoyable 56FPS in a 3-way SLI configuration. This is a 160% improvement over single card performance and a slight increase over the GeForce 8800 GTX in 3-way SLI.
