The first game I took for a spin on the Sapphire card is Dirt 2. Dirt 2 is a bundled game but is also one of the first DirectX 11 games. Turning on 8x MSAA and 16x AF brought frame rates in the low 100s, which is incredible. Turning on the graphics up a notch further to the maximum 16x FSAA 16x AF and SuperSample AA mode, the game was fully playable up to 1920x1200 resolutions, the maximum the card supports.

The next game on the list was Aliens Versus Predator another DirectX 11 title from Sega, the company that made Sonic the Hedgehog famous. After losing the console battle to the likes of Nintendo and Sony, Sega has concentrated on releasing new games for virtually every console and computer. This latest gamed takes the player through various locales in the guise of either the Predator, an Alien or as a soldier. This game plays completely stable and with high framerates at 16x AA and 16x AF.

Call of Duty was released many years ago by Activision. The game was originally set in World War II and was based upon the Quake 3 engine. It was released in 2003 and has spawned a slew of sequels including spin-offs like Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Call of Duty World at War and sequels to those games. COD MW2 is an included bundled game and while the graphics are not DirectX 11, they are good at depicting the scenes they are supposed to. The HD 5970 from Sapphire was totally playable up to and including 1920x1200 16x AA 16x AF in this game.
