Benchmark Results: The Last Remnant

Radeon HD 5770, Radeon HD 4890, And GeForce GTX 275 Overclocked
By

This role-playing game favors a much more relaxed pace, thanks to its turn-based battles. The Last Remnant is powered by the Unreal 3 engine that is enjoying growing popularity now that DirectX 10 is becoming more widely adopted. Anti-aliasing can neither be enabled through the game’s settings nor forced through Nvidia’s driver. Thus, we used the game’s standard setting, which enables 4x anisotropic filtering by default.

Graphics quality is set to the maximum available, which in this case is High. Frame rates are recorded in a battle sequence using FRAPS. Since the way the battles play out and the attacks vary between benchmark runs, we averaged the scores from two runs. Even middle-class graphics cards achieve decent frame rates in this title, with the better models guaranteeing smooth game play.

    I'm struggling to figure out why people keep using The Last Remnant as a benchmark considering how skewed its results are in favour of nVidia cards. Apart from that, good guide.

    Nvidia bias as usual from THG.

    An HIS 5770 is available in Australia for under $A200, Powercolor even cheaper. Fantastic value, particularly with the scope for overclocking. I'll be in India for the next two months, interesting to check Mumbai prices.

    Nice guide.I'm happy how you tested it with the tom clancy's games,and fallout 3,but,to make it better Crysis & Crysis warhead should be in the list,those games need a powerfull engine:) Nice anyway.

    The 5870 and 5970 came out on the open market like what 3 months ago. It is odd that these guys cant acknowledge there EXISTENCE. I do believe they are biased in there benchmarks. I mean if u can show Nvideas 2gig card why on earth wouldnt u show ATI`s 2gig card. Or even the 1gig. Not very honest on there part i am ashamed to say.
