2 GPU Testing

 

Crysis 3 continues to be one of those games that just scales well – the engine is built to support multi-GPU and the game, at these quality settings, needs it. There is still the occasional hitching in the game at 4K, but it happens with both AMD and NVIDIA hardware in my testing. Also an interesting note: at 4K the frame time variance of the SLI and CrossFire is actually LOWER than that of the single GPU!

3 GPU Testing

 

This is interesting: at 2560×1440 the 3-Way GTX 980 Ti SLI configuration does better and scales more consistently than the AMD Fury X cards, but that switches when we get to the 4K resolution settings.

Crysis 3 – 2560×1440
  Single GPU (FPS) 2-Way (FPS) Scaling 3-Way (FPS) Scaling
AMD Fury X 39 70 +79% 90 +28%
GTX 980 Ti 38 67 +76% 95 +41%
Crysis 3 – 3840×2160
  Single GPU (FPS) 2-Way (FPS) Scaling 3-Way (FPS) Scaling
AMD Fury X 20 39 +95% 57 +46%
GTX 980 Ti 19 35 +84% 51 +45%

Today's table is a little different than recent ones as we are not comparing directly between the AMD Fury X and GTX 980 Ti, and instead we are comparing single GPU to 2-GPUs and to 3-GPUs. The resolutions are separated to make things a big easier to digest and the "scaling" columns show you how much performance improvement you see going from 1-to-2 GPUs and then from 2-to-3 GPUs.

Both platforms scale well in 2-Way and 3-Way multi-GPU systems for Crysis 3, something we can't really say in any other of our benchmarks. AMD and the Fury X card are able to maintain advantages in both 2-card and 3-card combinations at 4K.
