Surround / Eyefinity Multi Monitor Performance (pg.2)


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.



Metro 2033



Shogun 2: Total War



The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim



Wargame: European Escalation



The Witcher 2



Our last few ultra high resolution tests tell a bit of a conflicting story. On one hand the HD 7970 is able to pull ahead in several of the most demanding games but the GTX 680 offers better driver support. The reason we say this is the lack of Eyefinity support for The Witcher 2 which used to run fine but as of version 2.0's display changes, no longer works with AMD's solution. NVIDIA found a way around this but even now, months after the patch, AMD still hasn't added functional support.
