Resident Evil 5
Resident Evil 5 is a survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom. Resident Evil 5 features similar gameplay to Resident Evil 4, with context-sensitive controls and dynamic cut scenes also making a return. The player can control Chris Redfield or Sheva Alomar in a similar fashion to Leon S. Kennedy in Resident Evil 4, with the same over-the-shoulder perspective.
All in game settings were set to their maximum. We used 8xAA for all of our performance tests in Resident Evil 5.
Benchmark Results: It's pretty obvious that Resident Evil 5 loves dual GPU's. Both the GeForce GTX 295 and Radeon HD 4870X2 are able to outperform a single Radeon HD 5870. A pair of 5870's and 5850's in CrossFire blaze through this game; when compared to the next closest competitor at 1920x1200, the GeForce GTX 295, they easily pull ahead. The ATI Radeon HD 5850 was trading blows with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285, but keep in mind that is a $269.99 video card as well.
