RTS Question Tags: Framerate Games Starcraft Video Games Last response: September 22, 2010 10:21 AM in Video Games Share Tml77 September 19, 2010 11:31:31 PM Hi guys i was wondering.. Which of these two games is more taxing? Starcraft II OR Dawn of War II? I just downloaded the demo of Dawn of War II, and at 800x600 all settings low/off the framerate was about 15 (very playable) So tell me, which game would run better? I'm not asking for rts recommendations, i just wanna know which will have a higher framerate.

I doubt SCII will run at all on that system. | Report abuse Metwinge September 20, 2010 10:05:18 AM SC2 may run but it will be hellishly sluggish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87j42huC8XI | Report abuse Tml77 September 20, 2010 11:31:05 AM So is that a yes, it will run better than DoW 2? Or a no, it will run worse than DoW 2? | Report abuse Related ressources Intel RTS 2011LC questions. - Forum Building computer for RTS gaming - Forum Will the GTX 680 be able to run all RTS games over next 4 years? - Forum Best strategy ( RTS ) - Forum Graphic card options for mmo/ rts games - Forum Ask the community Publish Herr_Koos September 20, 2010 12:34:35 PM 15fps vs not at all... DoW2 was released 18 months ago so it will probably be less taxing. Why don't you just compare the recommended system requirements and see which one is higher? | Report abuse Tml77 September 22, 2010 6:47:33 AM The minimum system requirements for starcraft 2 are actually MUCH lower than dow2, and the game DOES run (i bought at EB teh other day) and the fps is roughly what i expected (roughly 14-17, very playable) | Report abuse Herr_Koos September 22, 2010 10:21:06 AM Cool, but then I don't understand why you asked the question in the first place. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Video Games>RTS Question> Related ressources: ForumDoes it make sense to get 2600k for RTS gaming?
