Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising Benchmarks

The RTS Dawn of War 2 is based in the Warhammer 40.000 Universum and offers decent graphics and a good single player story. In the following article we will present benchmarks of various laptops and desktop systems.

How We Test

We use the integrated benchmark test and the graphics presets to test the game. The benchmark shows a massive battle and should give a good impression of the gameplay.

Analysis of the Benchmarks

To play Dawn of War II you need at least a modern integrated graphics card like the Intel HD Graphics 3000. However, the lowest detail setting are not very appealing. 

For good looking high settings you should at least have a mid range graphics card in your laptop, like the GeForce GT 540M.

To play in the highest settings and resolutions fluently, a mobile high-end graphics card  like a GeForce GTX 560M or a mid range desktop card like the GeForce GTS 450 are needed. 

The benchmark itself is not very CPU bound, as the old GeForce G210M with a slow 1.7 GHz Core 2 Duo manages to keep up in low details.

An overview of the games we have tested can be found here.

Legend
5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.
