Company of Heroes, or COH as we're calling it, is one of the latest World War II games to be released and also one of the newest in our lineup of benchmarks. It is a super realistic real-time strategy (RTS) with plenty of cinematic detail and great effects. Because of its detail, it will help stress out even the most impressive computer systems with the best graphics cards - especially when you turn up all the detail. We use the built-in test to measure the frame rates.

 

 

 

COH is the latest game to be added to the benchmark line up and is extremely intensive. While the card does offer quite the performance boost when compared to the standard X1950PRO, it still isn't able to outperform the GeForce 7950GT.

 

We tested this card sometime ago and used the older Catalyst 6.11 drivers. The recent Catalyst drivers for December 2006 (Cat 6.12) offer huge performance increases to Radeon cards under COH. We think that the Champion Edition should easily be able to keep up with the GeForce 7950GT using latest drivers.
