Resident Evil 5 revolves around Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar as they investigate a terrorist threat in Kijuju, a fictional town in Africa.
Within its first three weeks of release, the game sold over 2 million units worldwide and became the best-selling game of the franchise in the United Kingdom. As of December, 2009, Resident Evil 5 has sold 5.3 million copies worldwide since launch, becoming the best selling Resident Evil game ever made.
We are running this game at both 1680×1050 and 1080p (1920×1080) with 8AA and everything maxed.
AMD hardware performs well with the Resident Evil 5 engine and the Cyclone N450GTS has a tough time, maintaining almost equal performance with the reference clocked HD5750 at both resolutions. The HD5770 Vapor X pulls out in front at both resolutions with the GTX460 OC leading the way by a significant margin.
