Company of Heroes
We tested the game in the pure speed mode with enabled anisotropic filtering only, because it has problems when you turn on FSAA.
The senior GeForce 8 models deliver superb performance, making all resolutions, including 1920x1200, playable with comfort. The Ultra model ensures an additional reserve of speed in the highest resolution. The less advanced models are limited to 1600x1200 as their minimum speed is too low for comfortable play in the higher display modes.
The GeForce 8600 GTS isn’t much worse than the GeForce 8800 GTS at 1280x1024 but slows down suddenly in the next resolution as it has few shader processors and low-performance TMUs. Anyway, it does well for a mainstream graphics card. The characteristics of the GeForce 8500 GT are inferior even to those of the G84-based card and it cannot satisfy a gamer who wants to have the best image quality possible.
