ATI Radeon HD 3850 CrossFire Video Card ReviewThu, Nov 15, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Company of Heroes
Company of Heroes (CoH) is a real-time strategy (RTS) computer game developed by Relic Entertainment that was released on September 14, 2006. On May 29, 2007 Relic released a patch for Company of Heroes that supports DirectX 10 and we used the latest patch to test DirectX 10 game performance. Company of Heroes is set during World War II where the player follows a military unit, known as Able Company, as they fight their way through some of the greatest and bloodiest battles, including the D-Day landings at Normandy.
Benchmark Results: With the latest patch (1.71) installed, the performance numbers showed solid results on the higher end cards. The Radeon HD 3850 put some distance on the old Radeon HD 2600 XT by scoring 26 more frames per second. With CrossFire enabled the pair of Radeon HD 3850 graphics cards were just shy of beating out the single XFX GeForce 8800 Ultra XXX edition graphics card, which is the fastest single card available from NVIDIA.
