With the ioquake3-powered World of Padman game, all of the graphics cards were "playable" up to a 1920 x 1080 resolution except for the Radeon HD 2600PRO and the Radeon HD 2900XT. The best performer, to no surprise, was the ATI Radeon HD 4890, which was certainly playable in this game even at 2560 x 1600.

Tremulous was more demanding than World of Padman and all of the graphics cards had a much lower frame-rate. The only cards that were playable at all frame-rates were the Radeon HD 3850, HD 4830, HD 4850, and HD 4870, but even then, the frame rates never even hit 40 FPS.

Again, the Radeon HD 3850 (RV670) and the Radeon HD 4000 series cards tested did the best performance wise, this time with the Urban Terror test. As with the other tests, the results are quite self-explanatory.
