Company of Heroes

The game works with problems in the eye candy mode if the Ultra level of detail is selected. Therefore we tested the cards using anisotropic filtering only.

It is the graphics memory amount that is the main performance-limiting factor for the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB. All the six models of the card are about 35% behind the GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB at a resolution of 1280x1024. They differ but slightly between themselves, by no more than 1.4fps. And although the average frame rate of the cards is quite high, the minimum speed is not higher than 21fps. This means that you are going to have slowdowns in graphically intensive scenes.

So, the outcome is the same here as in the previous tests: the GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB all behave in a similar way notwithstanding the difference in their clock rates. Having half the amount of memory of the GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB, they don’t suit well for playing Company of Heroes. If you’ve already got a Radeon X1950 XTX or a GeForce 7950 GX2, there is no sense in replacing it with a GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB for the purpose of playing this game – you’ll just have lower performance.
