Surround / Eyefinity Multi Monitor Performance

Both NVIDIA and AMD now have single GPU multi monitor output options for some truly immersive gaming. However, spanning a game across three or more monitors demands a serious amount of resources which makes this a perfect test for ultra high-end solutions.

While all solutions have the ability to implement bezel correction, we leave this feature disabled in order to ensure compatibility. The benchmarks run remain the same as in normal testing scenarios.

Batman: Arkham City

Battlefield 3

Crysis 2

Deus Ex: HR

Dirt 3

Our first batch of multi monitor tests shows the HD 7970 banking on its higher memory footprint. Even though the AMD card doesn't beat the GTX 680 in most cases, both cards run a lot closer here than they did at single monitor resolutions. Nonetheless, it is still impressive to see two single GPU cards returning playable framerates at such high resolutions.
