Eyefinity – L4D2 and Metro 2033
Sorry, we didn’t have settings shots or in-game screen shots for this game, but if you don’t know about the Left 4 Dead series of titles, what the hell is wrong with you?  Left 4 Dead 2 takes the great squad-based gameplay of the first title and expands the game somewhat with new graphical features, weapons etc.  The first Left 4 Dead as a GREAT title for Eyefinity configurations so what about the sequel?

A 13% performance delta between the HD 5970 and the ARES card isn’t very dramatic and the 33% gap between it and the single HD 5870 is even less so…

Metro 2033 (DirectX 11)


The latest addition to our gaming benchmark suite, Metro 2033 is one of the best looking PC games in years.  By utilizing some advanced DX11 features as well as impressively high-quality shading routines this title pushes our graphics in way we have seen since the first days of Crysis.

We ran Metro 2033 with Advance DOF disabled because it brought all of the cards but the GTX 480 to an unplayable state.

The difference between the HD 5970 and the ASUS ARES card is again about 13% though the gap between it and the single HD 5870 increases to about 60% or so and nearly matches the pair of GTX 470s.
