Default Re: Benchmark x800xt and 6800 ultra with rome:tw demo on monday

the graphics given the sheer number of characters on screen @ any given time is pretty impressive (imo)... I have medieval... total war and even that looks pretty sweet when you zoom into the characters... excellent game (plus the french run away from you every time )

I have a feeling a powerful cpu will likely aid in the rendering of the multiple characters in the game...

Ok the demo is out. If someone could run benchmarks on a x800xt AND a 6800ultra for comparison, it would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the link how to get it:

no one here is gonna give u actual benchmarks...there is no benching option in the game and I dont know how many...if anyone on this site has both cards and the time to do a fraps bench. Just wait for some sites to gives benches or at least try to get some nvidia benches here and some ati ones at rage.

You can do benchmarks with fraps, the game doesnt need a built in benchmark feature.

the game is most likely severely cpu limited due to thousands of units on the battlefield at once, so i doubt there will be much difference between the xt and ultra...btw, the demo runs flawlessly on my gt @ 1280 4xAA/8xAF...
