Performance in Strategies
Act of War
Act of War is a real-time tactic strategy game that makes heavy use of pixel and vertex shaders, which means that the game is unlikely to be limited much by performance of central processing unit, but will benefit from faster GPU.
Due to higher speed vertex processors ATI’s RADEON X850 XT PE manages to outperform the GeForce 7800 GT and GTX in Act of War game. Nevertheless, the difference in performance between the RADEON and the GeForce products is not large enough to be considered as huge victory for ATI’s board.
With eye-candy activated the GeForce 6800 Ultra finds itself behind all the rest participants of the test that deliver very similar performance.
Act of War is a yet another game that does not benefit from the second GPU when launching in SLI mode.
