Sapphire HD 5970 dual GPU Radeon lands in our lab - 5. Gaming: Batman, BattleForge, Crysis

Review: All hail the new performance king









Batman - Arkham Asylum

Batman: Arkham Asylum features effects which require Nvidia PhysX compatible hardware. If you have a Radeon card you can turn all these effects off, or to be more precise you must turn them off if you want to play. Not even the HD 5970 could handle PhysX effects so we'll show you results with PhysX off.

Although Radeon HD 5970 is up to 26% better than the GTX 295, we'd rather play this game with Geforce PhysX-supporting cards. Not turning on PhysX effects would be a waste as they greatly contribute to the gaming experience.

Crysis

Nvidia Geforce GTX 295 holds up nicely versus the HD 5970 and almost manages to catch up – it runs only 7% slower at 2560x1600 and 4xAA. At 2560x1600 and no antialiasing, Crysis is a lot easier to play, and that's where the HD 5970 wins by 25%.

BattleForge

BattleForge features DirectX 11 support and we tested it using Windows 7. Although the difference is not what we'd call drastic, the quality of graphics is discernably better under DirectX 11. As you can see from the following results, Sapphire HD 5970 OC scores better than the GTX 295 by as much as 100% (You don't see such results very often, do you? Sub.ed).
