1920x1200 - Gaming Performance
Now at 1920x1200 we find the 4xFSAA setting to be even more demanding as it required a dual-GPU solution to crack 60fps, with the exception of the GeForce GTX 580. The Radeon HD 6970 managed just 52fps, while adding a second card boosted the frame rate to 68fps. Meanwhile the GeForce GTX 580 averaged 66fps, and adding a second card boosted performance to 90fps.
When using MLAA we find that mid-range graphics cards such as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti are able to still crack the 60fps barrier at 1920x1200. The Radeon HD 6850 was slightly slower with 59fps; the Radeon HD 5830 and GeForce GTX 560 averaged 55fps.
The Radeon HD 6870 averaged 72fps, making it slightly faster than the GeForce GTX 470 which managed 70fps. The Radeon HD 6970 did well to provide 86fps, though the GeForce GTX 580 was again superior with 95fps. As before we found that these settings broke Crossfire support sending the Radeon HD 6970 backwards.
