Performance in Strategies
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
This game having a frame rate limiter, you should compare the minimum frame rates in the first place because it is the minimum speed that determines your playing comfort in Command &Conquer 3.
Today’s top-end graphics solutions can’t be compared in this test at resolutions below 2560x1600 because they all reach the frame rate limiter and have a solid reserve of speed. At 2560x1600 CrossFire technology helps ATI’s solutions reach the level of the GeForce 8800 GTX/Ultra: the single Radeon HD 2900 XT can’t do that in either of its versions despite its high-performance memory subsystem.
The use of two Radeon HD 2900 XT 1GB cards in CrossFire mode leads to a performance growth, but this configuration is comparable only to the GeForce 8800 GTS and does not allow to play normally at 2560x1600 resolution with enabled antialiasing. Perhaps things will improve for the better with newer versions of Catalyst, but the GeForce 8800 Ultra is so far the best choice for playing Supreme Commander.
