Performance in Simulators
Now this is one of the few games where the old Radeon HD 5970 can still put up a fight with our hypothetical GeForce GTX 590 at every resolution including 2560x1600. AMD’s solution has a lower bottom speed but is never slower than 40 fps. That’s quite enough for Formula 1 racing. The single GeForce GTX 570 offers a similar bottom speed, confirming that multi-GPU configurations are not very demanded nowadays in the times of multiplatform projects like F1 2010 which has been released for the PC as well as for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2 Preview Benchmark
This benchmark makes wide use of tessellation to render the surface of the earth. The number of polygons per one frame can be as high as 1.5 million!
The GeForce GTX 570 SLI tandem has no rivals here. It might only be challenged by a GeForce GTX 580 SLI or a 3-way GeForce GTX 570/580 SLI configuration. Take note that SLI technology increases the frame rate at 2560x1600 only. We don't see any performance growth from it at the lower resolutions.
