Performance in Strategy Games
Age of Empires 3
The GeForce 7950 GT is 8-10% behind the GeForce 7900 GTX regardless of the resolution, finishing third behind the Radeon X1900 XT. We’d recommend you to avoid using resolutions above 1280x1024 with enabled FSAA because the speed of the GeForce 7950 GT may bottom out to below 25fps in that case.
Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends
Although the GeForce 7950 GT is a little ahead of the Radeon X1950 Pro in the standard resolutions, they deliver identical performance in 1920x1200, probably because the ring-bus memory controller shows its very best in that case. It is also clear that the amount of graphics memory doesn’t affect the game speed much whereas the clock rates are vitally important.
Generally speaking, none of the graphics cards has a high speed here, so you’ll probably have to choose between FSAA and high resolutions.
