World in Conflict

World in Conflict (DirectX 10)


An incredibly detailed RTS game, World in Conflict allows you to look at your troops from a bird’s eye view as well as zooming to street level to get hands on with the combat.  As you get closer, the game only looks better, as the scaling detail is incredible making this title an easy pick for DX10 benchmarking.

Single card performance shows a horrid result for AMD – the HD 2900 XT is getting less half the performance of the 8800 GTX and 8800 GTS 640MB cards!

SLI performance is a bit muted here because of the highly CPU limited parts of the World in Conflict game engine.  The 8800 GTX only gets an 18% boost in frame rate while the 8800 GTS 640MB card gets a more respectable 30% performance gain.  The AMD HD 2900 XT actually gets SLOWER again — there is obviously an issue here.

Update: WiC developer MassGate has announced an upcoming patch that will improve AMD/ATI graphics performance in DX10.
