23 - World in Conflict performance
Gaming: World in Conflict
Impressive gameplay and graphics that will make you go into shock and awe. Yes, World in Conflict has been released. This game offers a serious graphical challenge to you guys, the gamers. Wars often end in either victory, loss or compromise.
Vivendi Universal recently was kind enough to send us a copy a couple of days prior to the release of the game. You are an avid Guru3D reader so that means you also know we'll do things a bit differently. It's not moving very fast, but slowly we see more and more DirectX 10 titles becoming available on the market.
World in Conflict is a late Cold War real-time strategy game with a strong focus on unit tactics, action, team play, and destruction. Players take on a specific role commanding air, armor, infantry, and support units to form a combined arms force against the enemy. By controlling key strategic points on the map, you sway the battle in your favor. There is no resource-gathering, so every second not spent fighting the enemy over a piece of land is a second wasted.

What you are observing above are the results done with the medium (DX9) setting. Damn good performance. There's a lot of CPU limitation showing here though; therefore focus at 2560x1600 for a more accurate perspective.
When we look at 25x16 I must say that the eVGA SSC card really shines; but look at the passive cooled ECS card go, dang.
