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 Radeon HD 3870 X2 performed very well in the DirectX 10 Company of Heroes benchmark, but it couldn't quite keep pace with NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GTX.  It was marginally faster then the dual-card CrossFire setup, and the other single-card setups, however.  And perhaps with better CrossFire scaling in this game it may be able to catch the GTX.
