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.
We continue to see the GTX 295 perform extremely well with it really shining at 2560 x 1600. We also see that the 185.20 driver isn't helping the card at all. Since the 181.20 wasn't available at the time for Windows XP, we have only been able to compare the driver CD (180.48) and the leaked beta 185.20.
