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.




One of the most recent ATI Catalyst driver releases saw big performance increase for COH which gives it the honors of being the fastest card here, performance between the XXX and the 7900GS are very similar with the reference clocked card sitting as the slowest. Even at 1280 x 1024, you're going to want to ease of the detail to bring the minimum FPS up a little.
