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 120 Hz 3D-capable monitors.
Higher = Better
The XFX HD 7970 Black Edition proves that the reference testing was not a fluke. The GCN architecture shows significant gains over the previous generation in Eyefinity mode with both Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering enabled in all of the benchmarks. The XFX HD 7970 delivers at least 30 FPS in all of the "Games" when run in Eyefinity mode.
