Battlefield 3's single-player campaign is typically limited by graphics performance, so this is where we should see the new build's dual-GPU configuration provide a tangible performance benefit.
At 1600x900 and 1920x1080, the results are capped at 200 FPS, but at resolutions enabled by three screens, the SLI-equipped system establishes a significant lead. That advantage only grows when the detail levels are turned up.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Skyrim is generally platform-limited, so it's not much of a surprise to see that the new build's two GPUs don't come into play until we enable the highest detail level and turn on anti-aliasing. Even then, a significant advantage isn't achieved until the most taxing triple-monitor resolutions are applied.
