A wildcard RTS game, Battleforge has no official recognition for being S-3D compliant. However, Nvidia rates this title as “excellent” in their games list, and DDD already has a Battleforge profile. iZ3D also has compatibility, and they have been informed that we were looking to review this title some time ago.
The only limitation is that Battleforge doesn’t have a 1280X720 mode, so we only tested at 1920X1080 resolution. All settings were at maximum.
From a performance point of view, Battleforge consistently ran best with the Nvidia GeForce 3D Vision drivers. On the GTX285 graphics card, DDD and iZ3D remained neck and neck, but iZ3D inched ahead once antialiasing was set to 8X or more.
DDD and iZ3D performed better on the AMD 6870 than they did on the GTX285 both in frame rates and efficiency. The performance gap between solutions was practically non-existant until they hit the 8AA setting.
