ATI's Radeon 2600 XT Remixed

Supreme Commander

At first glance, the numbers look terrible. But remember, this is an RTS, not a first person shooter. Consistent frame rates are more important than a high average frame rate and even 1280x1024 is playable.

There is fluctuation here and there, but the benchmark is a replay of a saved game and won't produce exact results each time it is taken, so we can conclude that the video card isn't having much of an impact here.

Frame rates took a hit, but a relatively small one. And it's the same old story retold, as the 8600 GT has playable performance at 1024x768 with IQ options enabled.
