nVidia GTX480 Performance Test
All of the previous pages show a performance gain of approximately 23%, but this page shows 27.15% overall. This proves yet again that older titles stand to benefit a lot from a GPU upgrade, often even more than new games. In particular, Serious Sam 2 and Fear 1 show very large performance gains of over 30%.
Also, the GTX470 was no faster than the GTX285 in Painkiller and Far Cry 1, but the GTX480 is a lot faster than either card. This proves it wasn’t a CPU limitation, but rather the GTX470 holding back performance. The GTX480 barely overtakes the GTX285 in Call of Duty 2 while the GTX470 was a lot slower than the latter.
