S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat Results

On DirectX 11 , the Radeon HD 7970 and 7950 performed almost on par with Radeon HD 6990 on the more intensive SunShaft Runs benchmarks, They were clearly beaten by GeForce GTX 590 by about 34% (the widest losing margin on the Day Run benchmark, at the highest resolution, with anti-aliasing at 4x setting); however, they narrowed the losing gap with their main NVIDIA competitor, with the DirectX 10 drivers enabled, to at least approximately 8%. As such, the overall standings in this benchmark somewhat micmik the findings from Unigine benchmark where the DX 11 performance is pretty strong for the 7900 series and much improved from the predecessor, while further building on its good DX10 performance legacy.
