World in Conflict is a real-time strategy video game by Massive Entertainment and to be published by Sierra Entertainment for Windows (DX9 and DX10) and the Xbox 360.

 

The game is set in 1989 where economic troubles cripple the Soviet Union and threaten to dissolve it. However, the title pursues a "what if" scenario where, in this case, the Soviet Union does not collapse and instead pursues a course of war to remain in power. It is an intensive new game is sure to put plenty of stress on even the latest graphics cards and we use the built-in benchmarking for our testing.

For the most part here we see the HD 4870 X2 beating out the GTX 280. At the highest resolution the minimum does drop a bit lower, but the average is higher, albeit not as important. Adding a second card into the mix only sees gains at the highest resolution, though.
