Need for Speed: Shift is the 13th installment of the long-running
racing video game franchise Need for Speed published by Electronic
Arts. The game features 72 fully-licensed cars, ranging from classic
cars to modern sport cars. The game was in development for two years
before it was released and the graphics look great.
All in game settings were set to their maximum. We used 8xAA for all of our performance tests in Need for Speed: Shift.
Benchmark Results: The Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X was 3-6 FPS faster than a reference ATI Radeon HD 5870 in Need For Speed: Shift.
