Performance in Strategies
Red Alert 3: Uprising
The game has a built-in fps rate limiter locked at 30fps that cannot be disabled.
We again experience problems with Nvidia based graphics cards performance in Red Alert 3 when FSAA is enabled: all three GeForce GTS 250 models show extremely low results and even GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 is not fast enough for comfortable gaming in 1280x1024. Nvidia based solutions won’t be a good choice for this series of games and the situation is unlikely to change soon.
World in Conflict: Soviet Assault
The recently released add-on to the original game does not introduce any technical innovations but contains a new plotline that allows you to play for the USSR.
If you want to play World in Conflict with the maximum image quality settings, you need a better card than GeForce GTS 250 or Radeon HD 4850. Theoretically, there is no difference between the models equipped with different amount of onboard graphics memory, the games seems to be happy even with 512MB – memory bus bandwidth as well as its frequency and technical specs seem to be of much greater importance.
