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.

 

 

 

Across the board we can see that you're going to have to get into the settings before you play COH. We again see that there are large gains compared to the stock card equating from 70% - 100% but it still just can't get to the performance of the 8600GT.
