Warcraft III - The Frozen Throne
Warcraft III has proven to be one of the most popular games released in the past few months. According to our information, the game engine does not employ any pixel shader effects - nonetheless it requires a DirectX 8.1 capable card. We tested the performance of the cards with FRAPS using a 3vs3 replay on the map "Bloodstone Mesa" played back at 8x speed. The replay was recorded during a clan war.
The higher the resolution, the more the FX 5950 falls behind the Radeon 9800 cards. ATi's Radeon 9600 Pro/XT and the FX 5700 Ultra are once again on the same performance level.
