ATI Radeon HD 5850 CrossFire Video Card ReviewTue, Sep 29, 2009 - 11:00 PM
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 1920×1200, 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.
