Oblivion and Company of Heroes


Oblivion is a game that really taxed all of the cards at the time of it's release. Well over a year on and the current generation of cards simply fly through it. However, with advanced HDR, excellent draw distances, detailed grass and scenery as well as fantastic water/magic effects it's a good game to gauge performance for those who love RPG's.
Oblivion performance was surprisingly good, although remember that there was no AA added to the scene, which we can do with almost all of the other cards.
Company of Heroes

Company of Heroes is a WWII-based RTS game that has an enormous amount of world detail. I played a DirectX patched version of the game that gives modern GPU's a bit of a workout.
Company of Heroes
Company of Heroes was a little laggy with 2 x AA added and all in-game settings set to high. Medium was not a particularly nice experience, so high was set.
