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).

 

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.

Across the board we see good gains again with the HD 5850 CrossFire setup. It manages to actually out perform the HD 5870 setup in the minimum department which is a bit of weird fluctuation. In the averages the HD 5870 CF setup does come out ahead again, as you would expect.
