Everything’s backward in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The fastest results come from our P55-based SLI configuration—the GeForce GTX 285s in N-mode simply don’t scale as well in this title, despite being added manually to the driver’s control panel.
The single-player campaign actually is a supported configuration on the ATI side, already present in Lucid’s software. And, in a couple of cases, A-mode outperforms CrossFire with and without anti-aliasing. But amazingly, two cards actually run slower than one in this title. I checked and double-checked—it’s better to be running one 5870 here.
Nevertheless, it’s a surprise to see X-mode halving the performance of a Radeon HD 5870 in a title we would have hoped would show off what Hydra could do.
