Performance in Real-Time Strategies
Red Alert 3: Uprising
The game has a frame rate limiter fixed at 30fps.
The Radeon HD 4890 is ahead at both default and overclocked frequencies, outperforming the Radeon HD 4850 X2. Even the overclocked version has a rather low bottom speed at 1920x1200 and 2560x1600, though.
World in Conflict
This resembles Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. because the Radeon HD 4890 is not much better than its predecessor, save for 2560x1600 where the frame rate is too low for comfortable play. The new card looks better when overclocked, ensuring a playable speed at 1680x1050, just like the GeForce GTX 285 does.
