Performance in Strategies
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
The new add-on to Company of Heroes is tested in DirectX 10 mode only since it provides the highest quality of the visuals.
Leadtek’s card is somewhat slower than the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX at high resolutions which we wouldn’t recommend using due to very low minimum speed. The gameplay won’t be really smooth even at 1280x1024.
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
The game having a frame rate limiter, you should consider the minimum speed of the cards in the first place.
Every top-end graphics card delivers the highest possible speed in this game, which makes it impossible to compare them in this test.
World in Conflict
This is one of those games where the Leadtek WinFast PX8800 GTS 512MB is limited by the bandwidth and/or amount of the local graphics memory. It is almost as fast at high resolutions as the reference GeForce 8800 GT 512MB that has fewer shader processors and TMUs.
The new card is only 7% behind the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX at 1280x1024 but has a higher minimum of speed. This test resembles CoH: Opposing Fronts: you can try to play at 1280x1024 with enabled FSAA, yet slowdowns are unavoidable.
