Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition
Alas, CrossFire technology doesn’t work in this game. There is no performance growth relative to the single card. ATI’s solutions are superior, though. The Radeon HD 4870 outperforms the GeForce GTX 280 even at 2560x1600 notwithstanding the smaller amount of memory and the narrower memory bus.
Tomb Raider: Legend
Nvidia’s new-generation solutions and the dual-chip monster of the previous generation are unrivalled although ATI’s cards ensure comfortable play at resolutions up to 1920x1200. It is at a resolution of 2560x1600 that we can see why the GeForce GTX 200 is endowed with such advanced hardware resources. The minimum speed of the Radeon HD 4870 is not far lower than that of the GeForce GTX 260, though. CrossFire technology doesn’t work in this game and the CrossFire tandem has almost the same results as the single such card.
