ASUS GTX580 SLI Exclusive Review
Published: 12th November 2010 | Source: Asus | Price: £404 - £808 |
Normally we run our Crysis Warhead testing at Gamer level and zero anti-aliasing. Partly because that's how we've always done it thanks to the ability of most graphics cards, and partly because Crytek didn't bother to optimise it. However as we've got more graphics power than we know what to do with it just begged to be maxed out completely, so with Enthusiast settings and 16xAA we headed back to the Island.
We ended up with quite a surprise. Although a single card is, as ever, way too little to be playable, the GTX580 in SLI can still churn out over 60FPS with these settings. Ok it's the thick end of £800s worth of silicon, but the results are undeniable.
Although it was sprouted from the same genes as Crysis, FarCry 2 took a different, but still gorgeous, route to its goal.
A single GTX580 is more than plenty to run the game with everything on Ultra High. The ASUS GTX580 when overclocked rocks over a hundred frames a second. Add another and we see 150 on the board. We're as open-mouthed as you.
