Civilization 5

FRAPS Results of late game view benchmark, highest settings with 4xMSAA, 1920x1080.



We ran the test at Eyefinity resolution using our 3 displays in Portrait configuration, increasing our resolution to 3240x1920 (plus bezel compensation).

CrossFireX Eyefinity:

Civilization 5 is very CPU dependant, completely CPU bottlenecked at 1080P to the point that the driver overhead of CrossfireX reduces minimum performance. Eyefinity resolutions show clock speed and multi-GPU scaling to a degree, with pretty good scaling in percentage terms.
