Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 1280MB SOC Review (Page 5 of 13)

Page 5 - Benchmark: Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 runs off the Frostbite 1.5 engine, developed by EA Digital Illusions CE. It is a DirectX 11 game, released on March 2, 2010. We benchmarked our graphics cards on the Heart of Darkness level with everything maxed out at 1920x1200; the only manipulated variable is anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering, as reflected on the labels in our graphs above. Since Bad Company 2 does not have built in benchmarking tools for custom timedemos, we ended up playing the same level manually in the same manner repeatedly to obtain our results. Once again, the higher market GTX 570 dominated the midrange cards used in our tests, which is to be expected. At at average of 15-20fps ahead of its closest competitor, the GTX 570 did very well consistently. However, as much as history repeats itself, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 1280MB SOC held its own with a considerably decent margin against a generic NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 video card.
