Performance in Strategies
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 quality of the visuals.
Although this test is run in DirectX 10 mode, the additional shader processors of the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB do not make it any better even than the reference GeForce 8800 GT 512MB, let alone the pre-overclocked card from ECS. The low minimum of speed still means the lack of comfort for the gamer.
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
The game having a frame rate limiter, you should consider the minimum speed of the cards in the first place.
Every graphics card in this review belongs to a high enough class and easily hits the frame rate limit. They all have almost the same minimum of speed – the difference of 1fps cannot be spotted with a naked eye.
World in Conflict
The ECS card is exactly as fast as the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB excepting the slightly lower minimum of speed at 1280x1024. The performance is low, however, even at that resolution for comfortable play.
