The X offers The OC designation in the product name means that this card has been overclocked at the factory to provide slightly better in-game frame rates than a standard GTS-based card.

But as it stands, despite the curious depression in the Company of Heroes scores, the NXGTS is still a class-leading midrange card. The first thing you notice about the is that, unlike most modern cards, it’s refreshingly compact and quiet.

These results were recorded with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled. It won’t provide super-fast frame rates, but it will allow you to play games with anti-aliasing enabled at resolutions of x and x What’s puzzling is the Company of Heroes framerate, in which the card nc outperformed by the X Pro – by nearly 30fps, in our x test.

R, the card averaged 54fps frames per second at x, which translates to smooth game play, while at x, it averaged 37fps. So much so that comparing numbers with DX9 cards 860 really get you anywhere.

This DirectX capable card produces solid frame rates in current gaming titles and nxx the capability to display next-generation games in all their glory when they’re released later this year.

In most game tests, it’s clearly the superior midrange choice. Hardly a nut-clutcher of an increase, but every little helps. We ran in-game DX9 benchmarks at x and xthe standard native resolutions of today’s ,si panels; any higher than that is high-end card territory, and you’ll be guaranteed disappointing results. It runs quietly and comes with the cables you need to use all its video ports.
