Performance in Strategy Games
We turn on DirectX 11 support for the Radeon HD 5000 series in this game.
First place goes to the GeForce GTX 295. The Radeon HD 5870 is second and the Radeon HD 5770 CrossFireX is only third, following the leaders closely. On the other hand, the CrossFireX platform is better than its opponents in terms of bottom speed, which is important for scenes with large amounts of units.
World in Conflict: Soviet Assault
The CrossFireX configurations based on Radeon HD 5700 series cards are far more confident in the other real-time strategy we use: the most advanced variant even beats the Radeon HD 5870 although cannot overtake the GeForce GTX 295. The bottom speed of AMD’s solutions is no worse than that of Nvidia’s flagship which consumes over 200 watts. Unfortunately, none of the tested graphics subsystems can maintain a frame rate higher than 25-30fps at 2560x1600.
