Heaven performance from our CrossFire setup looks good; as you can see, it sits between the GTX 760 and GTX 770. With the big focus on tessellation under Heaven, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that it falls behind the GTX 770. Against the AMD cards, though, you can see we manage to come out ahead of the R9 280 3GB OC at both resolutions.

Normally, PSO 2 doesn't make use of CrossFire -not to its full extent at least. Although, this time we see some excellent gains over the single card setup. Looking above, we see gains of over 100% thanks to the second card and the higher clock speeds that are offered by the Sapphire solution.
