Dawn of War II is a real time tactics/strategy title developed by Relic Games and Published by THQ. It utilises the Essence engine 2.0 which was originally developed for their previous title, Company of Heroes. This version saw some serious tweaking and features impressive additions, allowing for more detailed models and textures, and more advanced lighting and shading effects, as well as including more complex “sync-kills” than those in Dawn of War also adding support for dual core CPUs.

It features an in-game benchmark too, which makes things very easy for me.
