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.
The game was updated to version 2.301 and benchmarked with 8x CSAA enabled and the quailty settings pushed to the max on the others.
Benchmark Results: Company of Heroes is tough on graphics cards with the latest DirectX 10 patch installed. Again the water cooled EVGA GeForce GTX 280 edges the PNY GTX 280 by 10% when viewing 1920×1200 resolution. There is a 28% performance increase over the GeForce 9800 GX2. Pretty impressive.
