Command & Conquer 3

Since the game limits the fps rate, we should consider minimal performance, because it determines the smoothness of the virtual troops control.

All GeForce 8800 GTX models are beyond any competition and provide sufficient minimal performance delta. Even in 1920x1200 it equals 25fps, which is enough for maximum comfort in Command & Conquer 3. none of the less powerful graphics cards can ensure small performance delta like that, although AMD Radeon X1950 XTX, for instance, hits the performance bar successfully.

As for those who own a GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics cards, we can only sympathize with you, guys: the average performance on this graphics adapter drops below 25fps in 1600x1200 already. Moreover, the minimal fps rate is only 10fps, so forget about gaming comfort whatsoever. And you should blame Nvidia’s aggressive policy aimed at ousting GeForce 7 family from the market and replacing it with the GeForce 8. Although the new graphics card family demonstrates impressive results, a lot of gamers out there still own plenty of previous-generation Nvidia solutions, and unfortunately, the most vulnerable ones are those who purchased GeForce 7950 GX2 hoping to get unprecedented performance. These dual-chip graphics cards depend a lot on the software support of the games in the graphics card drivers. However, since the official ForceWare version for GeForce 7 family was last updated over half a year ago, there is hardly any hope for the GeForce 7 SLI to function normally in the new games.
