Even though RE5 had some issues with aspect ratios that prevented us from playing, I was able to get the benchmark to run at least a few times based on memory of the menus.  You can see that the performance hit on this title was more severe: the Eyefinity configuration is a factor of about 2.5x slower than the single 30-in panel.  That was more in line with what expected: 3x the pixels, 2.5x-3x the performance penalty. 

Resident Evil 5 didn’t visually work well in our AMD Eyefinity testing – the resolution just didn’t scale correctly.  We also discuss a few other titles we played with that had issues with Eyefinity in this video:
