S. T. A. L. K. E. R. - Call of Pripyat
DX11 Gaming Performance


Call of Pripyat is the third game in the STALKER series and throws in DX11 to the mix. This benchmark is based on one of the locations found within the latest game. Testing includes four stages and utilizes various weather conditions, as well as different time of day settings. It offers a number of presets and options, including multiple versions of DirectX, resolutions, antialiasing, etc. SunShafts represents the most graphically challenging stage available. We conducted our testing with DX11 enabled, 2560 x 1600 resolution, and 4x anti-aliasing, and ultra settings.

Both GTX 480 graphics cards beat ATI's high end models in our STALKER testing, and it wasn't even close. The Hydro Copper FTW GTX 480 was 28% faster than the HD 5970 in average FPS, and 47% better than the HD 5870.
