On S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, the new Radeons were lackluster as the Radeon HD 6970 lost quite badly to the GeForce GTX 570. With the Day run with tessellation enabled, it was trailed the GeForce GTX 570 by about 5% to 10%. But on the more intensive Sun Shafts run, the GeForce GTX 570’s advantage increased to a whopping 25% overall. The newcomers do fare better than the last generation like the Radeon HD 5870, but not by much. Fortunately, it managed to reclaim lost ground when we reverted to DirectX10, and this seems to suggest that the Radeons are still better suited for DirectX10 applications.
