Today the benchmark line-up won't be as large as it normally is. Instead we'll be testing three cards at 5760 x 1200 in the games we normally test with to see how performance is.
The first will be of course the Eyefinity6; the other two cards will be the standard HD 5870 and the HD 5970 which is what I use to drive my own Eyefinity setup.
We have included 3DMark Vantage as a jumping point just so you can see where the models sit. Once you've made your way through the benchmarks you'll be able to find a number of pictures that were taken with the monitors when running Eyefinity. Actual pictures give you a bit of a better idea of the setup as opposed to just screen shots.
Let's get started!
3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware.
3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.
Here we can see the extra memory really does nothing for performance with the two HD 5870 based cards, performing almost identical to each other with just a bit of fluctuation being the difference.
