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 2600 XT and the GeForce 8600 GT left more to be desired, but all the other cards were able to render the scenes with enough frames per second to be playable. The GeForce 8800 GT performed great in CoH and was just 2.5 frames per second behind the GeForce 8800 GTX.
