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 Asus EAH3870 X2 1GB TOP's increased GPU and memory clock speeds gave it a small edge in the Company of Heroes DX10 benchmark.  At the lower resolutions, all of the Radeon HD 3870 X2 cards performed similarly, but once the resolution was increased the EAH3870 X2 1GB TOP was able to pull ahead by a couple of frames per second.
