S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, is the stand-alone prequel for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, a first-person shooter computer game by Ukrainian developer GSC Game World.[3] The game consists of a roughly 50/50 mix of new areas and old, remodeled areas from the previous game. The X-ray graphics engine has been updated to version 1.5 and includes DirectX 10 support (later patch 1.5.06 included DirectX 10.1). Additionally, the AI received an overhaul to accommodate the new faction wars feature.

This is not the best game for graphics cards with a lot of setups struggling. The game is even worse for NVIDIA cards. We can see that the Crossfire setup absolutely kills the NVIDIA offerings. Like PT Boats for NVIDIA, this one was going to be a pretty obvious win for the red team.


Optimum Setup- It takes some power, but playing at 1920 x 1200 with this Crossfire setup isn't going to be a problem with settings at high.
