Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends
It’s hard to find out the winner here because all the top-end graphics cards have in fact the same speed, yet we can note that the Radeon X1950 XTX CrossFire is about 15% faster than the GeForce 8800 GTX in 1920x1200. Both cards are rather slow, but never slower than 35fps, which guarantees that you won’t have any slowdowns.
Like in many other cases, the GeForce 8800 GTX shows its worth in 8x FSAA mode. Its average performance is a mere 6fps lower in 1920x1200 in comparison with 4x FSAA mode and its min performance is only 2.2fps lower than the average frame rate. That is, there is almost no fluctuation of performance, which is an indication of a good reserve of speed.
In 16xQ CSAA mode the GeForce 8800 GTX behaves like in the previous test, but we’d recommend you to limit yourself to 1280x1024.
