Sapphire HD5770 Crossfire Review

Crysis Warhead & MW2

Sapphire HD5770     Crossfire

Benchmarking Continued

Crysis Warhead

Ah Crysis Warhead how I hate thee. Every time we get some new hardware we hope one day to find the combination that Warhead enjoys, and everytime we come away more and more disappointed with how abysmally Crytek optimised it. Ho hum.

The 5850 still brings up the rear, the 5770xf isn't as far ahead as it was, and this time the 5870 noses ahead of our overclocked setup. Still very good performance though for two little cards.

Modern Warfare 2

Finally Modern Warfare 2. Although strictly speaking it should be called Future Warfare (unless we are fighting in space?). Here the 5850 gives a much better account of itself although still behind the near standard order of things.

Although the 5870 wins in maximum FPS, the 5770xf overclock provides the higher average framerate. All the cards on test though give great performance throughout and any of them would be a great choice.

Time to wrap this exciting test up.
