Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
We tested Call of Duty 4 by recording a custom demo of a multiplayer gaming session and playing it back using the game's timedemo capability. We've chosen to test at display resolutions of 1280x1024, 1680x1050, and 1920x1200, which were the three most popular resolutions in our hardware survey. We enabled image quality enhancements like 4X antialiasing and 16X anisotropic filtering, and we also added 2560x1600 to the list for the very fastest cards, in order to really stress them.
Nvidia gains some ground on AMD here, since CoD4 doesn't appear to benefit much at all from the 4870 1GB's additional video memory. The GTX 260 Reloaded is true to form, performing quite a bit better than the original GTX 260and almost as well as the GTX 280. That's enough of a boost to push the GTX 260 Reloaded past the 4870 1GB, although you probably would only notice the difference at 2560x1600.
