Performance in Real-Time Strategy
Red Alert 3
The game has a built-in frame rate limiter set at 30fps.
The GeForce GTX 295 solves the problem of low speed of Nvidia’s GPUs in Red Alert 3. Its frame rate is high enough for playing at resolutions up to 1920x1200 with 4x FSAA. Interestingly, the SLI tandems built out of discrete cards cannot deliver such performance although they exchange data through the same nForce 200 switch with the only difference that the switch is installed on the mainboard.
World in Conflict
All dual-core solutions from Nvidia deliver the same performance and are much faster than their opponents from ATI. The 3-way Radeon HD 4870 CrossFireX subsystem only goes ahead at 2560x1600, being the only solution capable of maintaining a playable bottom speed in that display mode.
