Need for Speed: Shift is the 13th installment of the long-running
racing video game franchise Need for Speed published by Electronic
Arts. The game features 72 fully-licensed cars, ranging from classic
cars to modern sport cars. The game was in development for two years
before it was released and the graphics look great.
All in game settings were set to their maximum. We used 8xAA for all of our performance tests in Need for Speed: Shift.
Benchmark Results: The
ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 didn’t do too hot
on Need For Speed: Shift, which is interesting to say the least. The
game is very new, so it is likely that some driver improvements need to
be made to these multi-GPU graphics cards. The ASUS EAH5870 led
the pack of cards by a decent amount as you can see above.
