Rainbow Six Vegas

Rainbow Six Vegas (DirectX 9)


The Rainbow Six series has always been a high quality set of games that center on action-based tactical assualt.  The new Vegas iteration takes a bit more of the action approach similar to what we have seen in Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter.  This game is the first to use the new Unreal 3 engine and you can tell!  The graphics are amazing and really stress our systems.

Rainbow Six is definitely a GPU-intensive game and the new 8600 series of cards does very well compared to the competition in this price range.  SLI performance is somewhat limited now though, at 18% and 15% at 1280×960 on the 8600 GTS and 8600 GT respectively and at a slightly more reasonable 27% and 21% across the two test platforms.
