The NX6800GT challenges the RADEON X850 XT in the first two resolutions, but slows down in 1600x1200 (yet it is still ahead of the RADEON X800 XL). Overclocking helps the MSI card keep on the same level with the RADEON X850 XT Platinum Edition. Don’t forget that this real-time strategy is a very demanding game. If you select the maximum graphics quality settings, you’ll have to play in low resolutions, even on a top-end graphics card. Otherwise the game is going to be too slow.
The GeForce6 family cards look even better against their ATI rivals in the “eye candy” mode of this game. Here, the MSI NX6800GT outperforms the ATI RADEON X850 XT Platinum Edition even in 1600x1200, although by no more than 1 frame per second.
