Call of Duty 2 Demo
|Building upon the Game of the Year winning Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty 2 promises to continue the trend of a chaotic wartime epic that is as pleasing for the eyes as it is for the ears. Using the newly released single player demo, we put the notebook through its paces to see how it fared with this promising new title. Here, all graphics settings within the game were set to "High" and Trilinear Filtering was enabled. Benchmark runs were then completed at resolutions of 1024x768, 1280x1024x and 1600x1200 with and without 4x AA and 8x AF.|
This taxing new demo took its toll on our sample notebook. Here, the GeForce Go 7800 GTX came close to keeping average framerates to 40fps even at 1600x1200. Enabling 4x AA and 8x AF only dropped performance by roughly 5fps leaving us curious whether an outside factor was the bottleneck. Given the fact that the demo was released a day after we received the system, we didn't have time to explore other system configurations to test this theory. Regardless, you can rest assured that we'll revisit this demo in a future article with a GeForce Go 7800 GTX GPU to investigate our results further.
