Resident Evil 5: Demo Performance Analyzed

@yellosnowman: there is a 4890, but it's been downclocked to 4870 levels (read the article) to be used as reference for Radeon performances (tests on Radeon wasn't too extensive, as the benchmark is optimized for Nvidia hardware). And yes, with HD 5xxx almost there, doing complete benchmarks here is pretty much useless: the game is playable with everything at full on a Radeon HD 4770 up to Full HD quality.

Gkay09, Direct X 10 was a failure because Vista was a failure. DX 9 has been thoroughly utilized - there has been no other choice.

On the variable benchmark @ 1680 x 1050 2x AA my Phenom II x4 955 and Radeon 4870 pulls and average of 80 fps in directx 9. I'm happy and have the game pre-ordered on Steam :)

Wasn't it more of because the mainstream DX10 cards (8600GT and 2600XT) didn't really perform well, and even some were beaten by previous generation cards. As such, pushing the detail level higher might mean fewer sales as fewer people had the cards to play the games at decent levels (8800GTS 320MB/640MB or 2900XT).

DX10 isnt really a failure .. if programmer take time to really work on DX10 optimisation .. more on SM4.0. remember Assassins creed? ubisoft take time to work on SM4.0 and the game work better in D10 than 9 ... higher framerate with better shadow

At least it should be a better port than RE4. When it loaded up it wanted me to hit "Start" to load the game, then the red "A" to play. My keyboard doesnt have a "Start" button or a red "A". Useless without a controller.

Nice a game and performance review in one, I like.
Is it just me or is this kinda hinting at software trying to catch up to hardware (the ever existing cycle). :) kinda funny since the 5xxx and 3xx are just around the corner.
 
Hmm... I'm definitely gonna have to try this in DX9 mode. I don't know if it will make a difference though as my Athlon 5000 @3.2Ghz seems to be holding my dual 3850s back. Still, I plan to plug in a Phenom II soon so.....
