Why AMD is known as one of the brand that perform well in 3 monitors setup?

Hi Guys, smile.gif)

Why AMD is known as one of the brand that perform well in 3 monitors setup? and What is so good about Radeon 7970 that everyone is recommending it for a 3 monitors setup to play Crysis 3 ?

Well, AMD was the first to support three displays very well. This current generation is very capable of pushing a lot of frames out to 5760x1080. However, Crysis 3 is a demanding game and you will probably be playing it at medium settings with one 7970 across 3 displays. Maxing it out will probably get you about 7FPS. People recommend it because it has a lot of memory and a high memory bandwidth which high resolutions take advantage of.

also much cheaper and Crysis 3 i believe is optimized for AMD Cards (hence why it came with the AMD Never Settle Bundle)

1) Back in the GTX 5XX days, only AMD could run 3 monitors off of one GPU. Nvidia required 2 GPUs. That is no longer a concern.

2) AMD CPUs come with more RAM - 3gb on the 7970 & 7950 vs 2gb on the 680 &670. You can, of course, buy versions with more RAM if you have sufficient monies.

3) Note that you shouldn't forget Crossfire/SLI or the really expensive single-card solutions if you have lots and lots of monies.
