HIS Radeon HD 5770 1GB Video Card in CrossFire - Benchmarks - Left 4 Dead

We get another HD 5770 and figure we should CrossFire it up with the one we already have. How do the numbers look with HIS' HD 5770 in tandem?

Left 4 Dead uses the latest version of Valve's Source engine, with improvements such as multi-core processor support and physics-based animation to more realistically portray hair and clothing, and to improve physics interaction with enemies when shot or shoved in different body parts. Animation was also improved to allow characters to lean realistically when moving in curved paths.

 

Rendering and artificial intelligence were scaled up to allow for greater number of enemies who can navigate the world in better ways, such as climbing, jumping or breaking obstacles. Lighting has been enhanced with new self-shadowing normal mapping and advanced shadow rendering that is important to convey information about the environment and player actions.

The single HD 5770 is already giving us some pretty good numbers and the CrossFire setup only improves them. Again we can see the setup is able to outperform the HD 5850.
