Benchmark Results: Crysis And Just Cause 2

System Builder Marathon, June 2011: $1000 Enthusiast PC

The Crysis benchmark delivers some interesting results. At high settings, performance is very similar up to 1080p. But at 2560x1600, the CrossFire solution shows a sizable advantage.

When very high settings are applied, the single card is beaten across all resolutions. Having said that, the Radeon HD 6950 is capable of excellent performance at 1920x1080 at both of these settings, but without any anti-aliasing this game is very likely bottlenecked by something other than on-board memory.

Just Cause 2 obviously favors the current build’s dual-card graphics configuration, although there’s a strange hiccup at 2560x1600 using stock clocks. This is remedied when we apply overclocking, and the single Radeon HD 6950 is easily surpassed.
