Performance Comparisons with Company of Heroes


Company of Heroes

Relic Entertainment's World War II era real-time strategy game Company of Heroes was originally released as a DirectX 9 title for Windows.  But recent upates to the game have incorporated support for new DirectX 10 features that improve image quality and enhance the game's finer graphical details.  The game features a built-in performance test which which we used to attain the results below. Our Company of Heroes tests were run at resolutions of 1,280 x 1,024, 1,600 x 1,200 and 1920 x 1200 with 4X anti-aliasing and all of the game's image-quality related options set to their maximum values.

The results from the built-in Company of Heroes benchmark somewhat mirror those of 3DMark06.  Here, the new Radeon HD 3650 just misses the mark set by the Radeon HD 2600 XT.  At the ultra high-quality graphics settings we used, however, all of the cards tested struggle quite a bit in this benchmark.
