Command &Conquer Red Alert 3 is based on the SAGE Engine (Strategy Action Game Engine) that has been used for Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth or Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars for example. Because of its age the SAGE Engine is not very demanding as the system requirements reveal:

C&C Red Alert 3: Graphics settings compared - The graphics options
The graphics menu of Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 offers the options typical for the SAGE Engine like texture quality or shadows. Depending on which setting you change, Red Alert 3 offers the following possibilities.
Furthermore there is a switch controlling the preset graphics settings. This affects all the subordinated options like shadows, water details or texture quality at the same time. For our comparative screenshots we choose those predefined graphics settings. All screenshots were taken at 2,560 x 1,600 on a Radeon HD 4870 1,024 MiByte, but considering slow internet connections, we downsized them to 1,280 x 800.
