Eyefinity & Surround:
This page will show how each card in the testing can run at a resolution of 5760x1080 in either AMD Eyefinity or NVIDIA Surround mode. Higher and lower end cards are being pushed to deliver on this type of display solution for gamers, as well as in office productivity. The reality is that a high end GPU is required for gaming at this resolution with moderate AA and AF settings. I will be using the same settings used in the standard GPU testing to run each card with a single large surface display. For the display, I will be using three ASUS VG236 120Hz 3D-capable monitors.
Higher = Better
Equipped with AMD's GCN architecture, the PowerColor LCS HD 7970 delivers what are commonly considered playable resolutions of 30+ FPS in all the tests run at 5760x1080, save Unigine's Heaven 2.5 benchmark.
