Maingear Rush Review With Radeon R9 295X2 CrossFire

Company of Heroes 2 Performance

Unlike the shooters that make up most of our current tests, Relic’s Company of Heroes 2 (the follow up to the popular Company of Heroes from 2006) is a real-time strategy game published by Sega. The game is set in World War II, but focuses on the Eastern Front, with players primarily leveraging the Soviet Red Army through various stages of the campaign. Company of Heroes 2 uses Relic Entertainment's proprietary Essence 3.0 game engine, and offers some impressive visuals. We tested the game at various resolutions, with its image quality preset set to “higher”, “high” quality textures, snow, and physics, and anti-aliasing set to medium.

DirectX 11 RTS Gaming Performance

Perhaps oddly, the Rush did the best at the lowest and highest resolutions, posting top (or nearly the top) in both, but it didn't scale very well at the 2560x1600 resolution. There, it had a middling Average score and a rough Minimum score. This is another title that doesn't scale properly with CrossFire.
