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.
We can see the overclocked offering gives us a big jump here at the higher resolutions, and it's the difference between playable and not playable at these settings when running 1920 x 1200. Jumping into the options though and you can drop the detail a bit so as to achieve a smoother experience at 1920 x 1200.
