IL-2 Sturmovik: Aces in the Sky
The graphics cards on ATI’s chips have a huge advantage in the “pure speed” mode of this test. The ASUS follows the top-end RADEON X800 XT, leaving the rest of the cards behind. Overclocking produced a few extra frames per second.
The new version of IL-2 doesn’t like 12-pipelined RADEONs in the “eye candy” mode. Even overclocked, the ASUS AX800 PRO has a smaller speed than the 16-pipelined monsters from the GeForce 6800 family.
