CrossFire: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (DirectX 9)


 

The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered.

Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.

The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

Here is a video our testing run through, for your reference

That 60 FPS lock that AMD can’t seem to find a way around is probably really biting it in the ass here as we see slightly negative scaling at 1680×1050 and 1920×1080.  And, to make matters worse, we couldn’t complete CrossFire testing in Skyrim at 2560×1600 reliably without watching the game crash back to the desktop.  I am not sure if this is a problem with the driver, or the game or both, but based on the BF3 and Batman: AC results I think we have to push AMD to get another driver fix here…
