ATI Radeon HD 5970 2GB in CrossFireX - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

Having been impressed with the new HD 5970 in standard and overclocked form, now it's time to see what magic can be made with two of these bad boys.

High Quality AA and AF

 

Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren't struggling before they will start to now.

 

Resident Evil 5

Increasing the detail, we can see RE5 makes some excellent use of the second card. We've moved a massive 60 FPS forward which is fantastic. It's a pity in this situation RE5 is literally maxed out.

 

Far Cry 2

One minute we're scraping at the bottom of the 30 FPS minimum, the next we're so far above it. This would really make your whole game experience nicer. While 30 FPS is what we want to aim for, getting above 40 is what you ultimately want if you're spending big dollars.

 

World In Conflict

While our non AA WIC tests saw a bit of negative performance, when we start to max out the settings of the game and really put the cards to work, we see a good increase in performance. We've fortunately gone from 5 FPS under that 30 FPS minimum to 4 FPS over it.
