We have already reviewed new Radeon HD graphics architecture before, but at that time we only took a closer look at the top Radeon HD 2900 XT model, while more mainstream solutions didn’t get covered because they were scheduled to start selling a little later. Finally, mass Radeon HD saw the light of day and today we are going to check out one of them: Radeon HD 2600 XT.
Company of Heroes
We don’t use the eye candy mode in this game due to its having problems with FSAA. We test it with anisotropic filtering only.
Despite the rather good average speed at 1280x1024, the Radeon HD 2600 XT doesn’t suit quite well for playing this game because its min speed is only 19fps. Theoretically, it is possible to play at this performance level, because Company of Heroes is not a first-person 3D shooter. But in some cases the performance drop may have serious effect on the troops control precision and hence on the overall campaign success. As for the GeForce 8600 GT, its speed is never lower than 28fps while the average is as high as 73fps. This is enough for comfortable play.
