Need For Speed:
Carbon
Dating back to the days of floppy disks, EGA, and the Lamborghini Countach, the Need For Speed franchise is undoubtedly one of the most popular in gaming history.  The most recent addition to the franchise is Need For Speed: Carbon, a racing-sim loaded with muscle cars and exotics in addition to a number of lighting and special graphical effects. We ran these NFS: Carbon benchmarks by utilizing FRAPS and tracking framerates on the same track, using the same car with every graphics card. The game was configured with all of its graphics-related options set to their maximum values, with motion blur enabled.  We tested the game at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024 and 1,600 x 1,200 with 4X AA and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled simultaneously.

Performance in Need for Speed: Carbon didn't seem to falter with the GeForce 88000 GTS 320MB card's smaller frame buffer. The XFX GeForce 8800 GTS XXX Edition was faster than both reference GTS cards by a few frames per second at both resolutions, regardless of frame buffer size. And the flagship GeForce 8800 GTX XXX Edition was once again the fastest of the bunch.
