While we already looked at Battlefield Bad Company 2 earlier, we wanted to try something different by placing the manually overclocked GTX 460 SLi solution in a head to head with two reference clocked HD 5870 cards on the same system. Obviously there is a considerable price difference but with the GTX460 manual overclock it will be interesting to see how close the dual card solutions match up.
Both solutions deliver fantastic performance results and are perfectly playable throughout. The HD5870 CFx solution has the edge, by about 7 frames per second but it is hardly noticeable real world. We were surprised how well the GTX460 SLI performed with this title and you will note that the all important minimum frame rate scores are identical.
