Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 1GB SOC Review (Page 6 of 13)

Page 6 - Benchmark: Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops is uses Infinity Ward's IW engine, and began selling to the general public on November 9, 2010. While this is a pretty recent release, this game is not particularly demanding as far as graphics are concerned, as it runs off an older engine. Like Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Black Ops does not have a built in benchmarking system for custom timedemos (That works properly), so we gave up and just did what we did with the previous game. The manual test involved a run through the S.O.G. level in the exact same gameplay sequence with all details set on maximum. Since the game has a setting that restricted it to 85 fps maximum, we edited the configuration file to uncap its performance to 500 fps. Our results are shown in our graphs above.
