Benchmarks: Section 8, The Last Remnant

Section 8 is another game based on the original Unreal Engine 3, and again while other Crossfire setups show reasonable performance gains, the Radeon HD 5970 was just 9% faster than the Radeon HD 5870 at 2560x1600. Although this did make the Radeon HD 5970 the fastest graphics card tested, we are hoping to see significantly larger performance gaps between it and its single GPU version.

In The Last Remnant, our last test using the Unreal Engine 3, we see a decent performance margin favoring the Radeon HD 5970 when compared to the Radeon HD 5870. At 2560x1600 the card was 58% faster than the Radeon HD 5870, while it also managed to edge out the GeForce GTX 295 by a 15% margin.
