Metro: Last Light sees some fantastic performance gains, and you can see it manages to not only come out ahead of all our other setups here, but it also manages to break past that 60 FPS barrier at the highest resolution.

Nexuiz is another game that doesn't take advantage of CrossFire, and instead causes a drop in performance when compared to our single GPU solution. This isn't anything unusual, and we're not sure why no one has ever really made an effort to fix it. Let's move on to Sniper Elite V2 to see how that goes.
