Single 6950 good enough for Eyefinity?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I'm looking into getting an Eyefinity set up with 3 1920x1080 monitors. Will a single 6950 be enough to max every game I play (bc2 probably most intensive game I play) with 60+ fps or should I Crossfire?
Also, your thoughts on Eyefinity would be appreciated.

X-fire just for the extra performance boost, i dont think you will get 60+ FPS with just a single, but you might get close. rep

My 6870 overclocked gets about 60 fps in BFBC2 so I think that you would need to crossfire and if you want to unlock and you will probably see 60+ frames in BFBC2 in eyefinity.

You should be able to run a stable Eyefinity setup if you flash the 6950's bios and get a 2GB VRAM verison of the card and do a overclock.

No, I don't think even unlocking would help. You'll need at least 2x6950(unlocked) to do that.

EDIT: Maybe the 2gig one would do the job.

Most games will be playable with an unlock 6950 at 5760x1080. You will NOT be able to use more than 2AA. You will not be able set to "Very High" if you're playing crysis, playable at "High". You shouldn't have problems any problems as long you don't expect a lot from it. If you want 60 fps+ then crossfire it. If you're okay with 30-60 fps then a single 6950 will do the job.
