Performance in Strategies
Age of Empires 3: The War Chiefs
This sequel to Age of Empires 3 is quite satisfied with 256 megabytes of graphics memory and is more sensitive to the amount of pixel processors as is indicated by the results of the GeForce 7950 GT in comparison with the Radeon X1900 XT. The increased clock rates of the Foxconn GeForce 7950 GT 256MB don’t produce a big effect: this graphics card is only 1-1.5fps faster than the standard GeForce 7950 GT at best.
Company of Heroes
Being a real-time strategy, yet with the visuals of a first-person shooter, Company of Heroes naturally runs faster on a graphics card with more of graphics memory. This is especially conspicuous in 1280x1024 resolution where the Gigabyte GeForce 7950 GT is 25% ahead of its opponent. This gap is getting smaller in higher resolutions as other limiting factors enter the play, but the speed of the cards is too low even in 1600x1200 resolution for you to play in that resolution with enabled FSAA.
