Asus 9800 GX2 1GB (EN9800GX2)
Oblivion and Company of Heroes
Oblivion is a game that really taxed all of the cards at the time of its 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 is pretty even among all of the GPU's, but we see that the scaling when 8 x AA is added to the scene shows no drop in performance whatsoever, which is pretty fantastic.
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.
Results from Company of Heroes was quite interesting. The game was played in DirectX 10 mode and all settings set to the highest. The 9800 GX2 seemed to keep the same numbers, even having a slightly higher minimum FPS for the 8 x AA run. Playing the game never seemed to lag at all, so I don't think you'll have any problems running CoH at any res or AA detail you choose.
