ATI Radeon HD 5870 + 5850 Crossfire – Mixing Video CardsWed, Oct 21, 2009 - 12:00 AM
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: Running mixed CrossFire in Resident Evil 5 showed that the solution was 4.6% slower than a pair of Radeon HD 5850’s in CrossFire, which is interesting. This might be the first negative we have seen of running mixed CrossFire. The solution is still awesome though as it is 57% faster than just a single Radeon HD 5850!
