Eyefinity & Surround:
This page will show how each card in the testing can run at a resolution of 5760x1080 in either Surround or Eyefinity 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
The HD 7970 is the only single GPU video card capable of reaching over 30 FPS in these game tests using the same setting used for the balance of the testing. Unigine's Heaven benchmark is the exception to the rule as even the dual GPU cards struggle to reach 30 FPS.
