Widescreen benchmarks with GTX 275 SLI at WSGF
Our colleagues of the Widescreen Gaming Forum have published new benchmark results for widescreen and surround gaming resolutions in four popular games.
In our graphics cards reviews we usually run benchmarks in the most common resolutions. The Widescreen Gaming Forum (WSGF) on the other hand also deals with settings that exceed the usual limits. They run benchmarks even at resolutions higher than 2560 x 1600 pixels which is natively supported by most 30 inch displays.
After the initial tests in Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Far Cry 2, World in Conflict and Trackmania Nations that compared the performance of a Geforce GTX 295 and two versions of the GTX 275 with 896 respectively 1792 MiByte VRAM our colleagues at the WSGF now have published new benchmark results. This time they compared the GTX 295 with a GTX 275 1792 SLI setup as well as a single GTX 275. While the graphics cards don't have problems to deal with the huge resolutions of 3840 x 1024, 2560 x 1600 and even 5040 x 1050 in Half-Life 2: Episode 2, the frames per second are noticeably lower in the more challenging Far Cry 2. In our picture gallery you can find some of the results.
