Performance in Strategies
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
The new add-on to Company of Heroes is tested in DirectX 10 mode only since it provides the highest quality of the visuals.
The overclocked Albatron 8800GTS-512X doesn’t impress here. The minimum speed is still below 25fps. The card can only match the performance of the reference GeForce 8800 GTX, yet it’s good too, considering the narrow memory bus.
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
The game having a frame rate limiter, you should consider the minimum speed of the cards in the first place.
The max speed being limited at 30fps, the game cannot reveal any effect from the overclocking of the Albatron card. The 1fps growth of the minimum speed is too negligible to affect the gamer’s experience.
World in Conflict
The biggest overclocking gain can be observed at a resolution of 1280x1024 pixels. It makes the Albatron competitive against the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX. The higher minimum speed means a more enjoyable gameplay although 16fps is still not enough for full comfort.
