C&C Generals: Zero Hour
That’s the first fiasco of the new graphics processor as it is much slower than its competitors (see below).
The GeForce 6800 Ultra is faster than the others in the hard modes, but there’s no sense in talking about performance, since we have problems with the picture quality. The problems are somewhat similar to what we saw in Far Cry, but show up very oddly: the ordinary version of Zero Hour looks like a special Christmas edition:
As you see in the screenshot, the sandy desert has transformed into a snowy desert, with all oases buried under a thick layer of snow. Only the forlorn palms and the lack of flares on the water remind us that this is a problem of the graphics card, not a holiday edition of Command & Conquer. Hopefully, the next driver version will do away with this problem.
