What would testing be if you did not show both sides of the fence? In this test, PhysX was set to low, while leaving the remaining settings intact. You have seen time and again where the ATI cards suffer when PhysX is enabled. Mirror's Edge and Cryostasis are two prime examples. Darkest of Days is no different. What happens in this test shows that, although the game can be played by cards from the red team, the video effects and quality are diminished.
- Global Settings = High
- Physx Low
- Ambient Occlusion On
Higher = Better
It's clearly evident that even with the latest Crossfire profiles from ATI, that this game is not well supported. The frame rates delivered by the Toxic are close to what the HD 5870 delivers, showing that just one core is working.
