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 DirectX 10 Company of Heroes benchmark put the new XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Alpha Dog Edition and Asus EN8800GTS TOP somewhere in between the original GTX and the relatively new GeForce 8800 GT while running in a single card configuration, the scores are right up there with the GTX though. 

Unfortunately, we ran into an issue with the Company of Heroes SLI testing with the 8800 GTS 512MB cards.  It seemed that anti-aliasing was not working despite multiple attempts to enable it via the game's control panel and NVIDIA's Forceware drivers.
