Rainbow Six: Vegas – Radeon HD 2600 XT

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.

The Rainbow Six: Vegas title proves to be a good one for AMD’s 2600 XT card; it is able to beat the 8600 GT and comes close to playing as well as the GTS card.

Once we plug in the second card though, that all goes out the window; the pair of 2600 XT cards scales very poorly compared to NVIDIA’s SLI results and thus NVIDIA wins the multi-GPU scores.
