Performance in Realtime Strategy Games
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 level of detail and hence the highest quality of the visuals, which guarantees the best gaming experience.
According to the obtained results, the second GPU of ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 was not involved. Besides, we once again see the drop of minimal fps rate. So, we cannot recommend this graphics card for the Company of Heroes fans.
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
Since the game has frame rate limitation, you should consider the minimum speed of the cards in the first place.
Because of the average frame rate limitation, it is impossible to single out a performance leader among the today’s fastest single graphics cards, at least not without testing in extremely high resolutions. All testing participants, including ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 work just fine in standard resolutions with enabled FSAA 4x.
World in Conflict
CrossFire mode doesn’t work properly here, which leads to significant performance drop compared with a single ATI Radeon HD 3870. Unfortunately, as of today we can’t say that ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 will be a good choice for all the gamers.
