Dirt Showdown performance looks great with both setups here. Adding the second card into the mix gives us a 75 percent increase in performance, and you can see that $3,000 brings home almost 200 FPS at this ultra-resolution.

AMD and Nexuiz annoy me so much. Nexuiz is a game that AMD really promoted, and while from a gameplay point of view, it's nothing fantastic. From the perspective of being an intensive benchmark thanks to it being based on CryEngine 3, it is pretty good.

 

Unfortunately, as soon as you make use of CrossFire, the game just crumbles. Looking above, you can see both setups score a miserable 12 FPS, a number that is lower than a single R9 290X 4GB.
