Performance in Strategy Games
Age of Empires 3
The ASUS card takes a humble third place and delivers lower minimum performance than the Radeon X1900 XTX in resolutions above 1280x1024. On the other hand, it provides a comfortable frame rate in every resolution with enabled 4x FSAA.
Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends
There’s a difference of one GPU and 10-12% of speed between the ASUS EN7950GX2 and the Radeon X1950 XTX. The latter isn’t much slower for using the more advanced anisotropic filtering method. But telling you the truth, the better image quality won’t be conspicuous in this game as well as in other real-time strategies where the player uses a view from above most of the time.
