Performance in Strategy Games
We turn on DirectX 11 support for the Radeon HD 5000 series in this game.
The single-processor Radeon HD 5870 lost to the previous-generation dual-processor solutions but the Radeon HD 5970 easily beats the oldies and shows a good bottom speed at 1920x1200. Overclocking raises the speed to comfortable level at that resolution.
World in Conflict: Soviet Assault
Incredibly, the new Radeon HD 5970 makes the game playable at 2560x1600. None of the previous-generation solutions and not even the single-processor Radeon HD 5870 can do that, even though they might show a good average speed. Yet another impressive win for AMD!
