The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Radeon HD 7870

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

Skyrim proves to be interesting for the HD 7870 against the NVIDIA graphics cards.  At 1680 and 1920 resolutions the HD 7870 ties with the GTX 570 and loses slightly to the GTX 580 but at 2560×1600 that changes into a WIN against the GTX 570 and a tie with the GTX 580.  This definitely proves my comments on the first page about the advantages of giving both the HD 7800 cards 2GB of memory.
