Testing methods and system used

Finally, a short description of the system that was used for conducting the tests:

All other drivers were used in their latest available incarnations.

Since AC doesn't have an inbuilt test, we'll be using FRAPS 2.9.4, with the same average of three 3 minute runs method that we used in our main review of the 3870X2. The run consists of going from the portcullis of Al Mualim's tower through Masyaf out the gates to where the horses are placed.

There's also an issue with the drivers used: they currently don't have a Crossfire profile for AC. This means that by default no scaling is experienced. Since this is a sneak-peek, we'll make an exception from our rules and make use of renaming the game's executable. After testing, we've found that renaming AssassinsCreed_Dx10.exe to COJ_DX10.exe produces the best results for the DX10 pathway, whilst for the DX9 one you should rename AssassinsCreed_Dx9.exe to fear.exe. Probably, by the time we test AC as part of our benchmarking suite, ATi will have released updated drivers that contain proper profiles.
