XFX Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition Limited 4GB in CrossFire X Review

Ah, Crysis – one of the most talked about games of all time. An engine that brought even bad ass systems to their knees when it was released and one which divided opinion between the gaming community. Was it a truly a masterpiece ahead of its time? You decide.

Today we are testing at 5760×1080 with Enthusiast settings. Yes, you read it right.

The single XFX HD5970 Black Edition 4GB easily outperforms the reference HD5970 although at these settings it is still not playable. Lowering settings to gamer helps but its still not playable throughout. In Crossfire X these settings really come to life with an extra 10-15fps on the average frame rates. Scaling in Crysis isn't wonderful, but slotting in another card certainly helps. At least we know now much we need to spend on graphics cards to get Crysis playable at 5760×1080 with enthusiast settings … just over £1,800.
