    The guys over at AMDZone benched a few high-end ATI and NVIDIA cards, including the Sapphire Radeon X850XT PE, Leadtek Winfast PX 7800GTX Extreme, Leadtek 6800 GT, Sapphire Radeon X800XL 512MB, using the pre-relase of the Call of Duty 2 Demo.

    The most interesting is certainly the Sapphire Radeon X800XL 512MB, obviously because it's one of the first high-end cards that utilize 512MB of VRAM.

    The specs of the machine used for benchmarking:
    • Mother Board: Gigabyte K8NXP SLI
    • CPU: Athlon 64 3800+
    • Memory: Corsair XMS 1GB
    • Power Supply: H.E.C. Power OP 475
    • Hard Drive: Western Digital WD800
    • Case: Tsunami Thermaltake

    Runs like crap, and doesnt even give you much eye candy for the low fps :rolleyes:

    Especially considering nothing in the enviroment is interactive, it should run better than it does :rolleyes:

    Thats what was great about Call of Duty 1, ran on an old engine so it could produce interesting battles with no FPS drop.

    it would be nice if they stopped working on passive improvements, and started with some nice graphical improvements... like there was when it went from UT->UT2k3 :)

    You have no idea how much I agree with you. I will NOT be buying this game at the rate it's going... Plus I'm sick of WWII shooters by now anyways.

    Same here, not quite on that par though. I just watch the History Channel and stuff a lot. Although COD2 doesn't look very impressive so far.

    The article is more about the Sapphire Radeon X800XL 512MB, than CoD2.
