10. Company Of Heroes
In Company of Heroes, gamers will experience the journey of the brave men of Able Company in a deep single-player campaign that begins with the invasion of Normandy through their fight across Europe, all set against the most dynamic battlefield ever seen in a game.
Company of Heroes' completely destructible environment means no two battles ever play out in the same way. Advanced squad AI delivers startling new realism and responsiveness, bringing soldiers to life as they interact with the environment and execute advanced squad tactics to eliminate the opposition forces.
The game offers impressive graphics, especially when all visual quality settings are set to maximum.
We used the built-in benchmark for all tests at 1280x1024 resolution. Since AA/AF cannot be set from within the game, we used Nvidia's 3D control panel for each mode. The built-in Antialiasing setting for Company Of Heroes has been disabled. Let's see how each card performed in the Company Of Heroes Benchmark with High Quality settings.
The EVGA 7950GT KO still holds first place with 66FPS. The PowerColor X1950Pro managed 49FPS.
In this benchmark, we noticed a surprising behaviour from the PowerColor X1950Pro. When 16xAF/4xAA was enabled from within ATI Catalyst, its performance made a dramatic drop down to 20FPS. This was confirmed again and again as we repeated the whole procedure. Changing AA from 4x to 6x provided a performance increase up to 49FPS(!). This could be a possible bug in the game or in ATI's drivers.
