HIS HD6990 Eyefinity Review

Metro 2033

Always one of the most demanding games in the OC3D line-up, Metro2033 performs much better than expected once stretched over three screens.

We've always held that there is something about the design of the game that prefers two GPUs to one, and it's clear that once you've got two GPUs under the bonnet the engine scales very well. The HIS HD6990 smashes through 60FPS on a single screen but even our Eyefinity setup only drops to 45 FPS. Impressive.

Tom, have a look at a program called widescreen fixer. It actually fixes the rubbish aspect ratio with black ops, and makes the game totally playable.

In the latest CCC you can set up presets. I have 2 presets 1*5760*1080 & 3*1920*1080. I have these assigned to keyboard shortcuts, so by hitting one key you can change your resolution between "work" mode & "play" mode.Quote

Mr. Strawberry
some of the games i was rather disapointed with tbh

the only game i would call 100% in eyefinity is Metro 2033, even crysis warhead wasnt that good, on the 2 outer screens it was zoomed in so if you saw someone they looked right next to you but when you turn to face him he would be 50+ metres away.

where as metro was just perfect all the extra desktop space and it still looked just as detailedQuote
