Call of Duty World at War is the latest game from Activision. The COD series is set in different theaters of war with the latest one set in WWII Japan. The 4870 X2 from Palit played this game flawlessly with framerates in the 70s even under heavy fire from the enemy. The graphics engine is based on DirectX 9.0 graphics capabilities and the HD 4870 X2 was fine up to the maximum resolution 1920x1200 4x AA 16x AF throughout.

Left 4 Dead is another of those recent games this time by Valve the makers of Half Life 2 Episode 1 and 2 and the various variants. The Source engine has been updated to add some features such as physics-based animation and multi-core processor support. Self-shadowing normal mapping and advanced shadow rendering was added to the engine to give a more realistic look to the game. The game played fantastically on the HD 4870 X2 card with high framerates throughout the game with maximum settings.

The HD 4870 X2 card is designed to play games like Far Cry 2 which has a new engine called the X-Ray engine instead of the CryEngine 2 that was used in Crysis. Set in an African country in the midst of a Civil War, Far Cry 2 improves upon the original by having wide open gameplay throughout the game. The game played beautifully on the HD 4870 X2 from Palit with frame rates in the 30s throughout the resolution spectrum and with AA and AF enabled. The card plays it wonderfully.
