So before i bought my eyefinity setup, i wondered how much of a fps hit i would take and if the fps hit scaling was linear or not. I could not find any review or performance comparisons, so i am doing this review today for anyone wondering how much of a performance hit their is and if their gpus can take it.

Test System

Intel Core i5 650 @ 4.2Ghz
Gigabyte P55
4GB DDR3 @ 1600
Radeon HD 6950 2GB 900/1375
Seagate 500GB
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Single Monitor - 1680 x 1050
Eyefinity - 5040 x 1050

Games To Be Tested

Dirt 2 - Max Settings (2 xaa) [In Game Bench]
Batman: Arkham Asylum - Max Settings [In Game Bench]
Just Cause 2 - Max Settings (2 xaa) [Desert SunRise]
Crysis - Max Settings (no aa) [Guru3D Bench Tool]

Note: all of the games above will be benched using their bench tools. How ever not all will provide a minimum fps, thus the reason why some of the graphs will not have a min fps bar

Results

Dirt 2


Just Cause 2


Crysis


Batman Arkham Asylum


Conclusion

Eyefinity Percentage Performance Hit

Dirt 2 - 47% Decrease in FPS
Batman AA - 42% Decrease in FPS
Crysis - 66% Decrease in FPS
Just Cause 2 - 53% increase

So it seems that eyefinitys hit on fps varies by a fair amount.You can see some games take more of a performance hit than others, Crysis for example took 66%, which appears to be almost linear scaling after adding the other 2 monitors! Where Batman AA took much less of a hit at 42%!

Thankyou for reading this review, i hope it was of some use to you

If you have any particular games / settings you would like me to bench, do not hesitate to ask

In regards to your PM, I will put this into the homepage of the Info thread, however your account seems to not be accepting PM's back? Anything to do with yesterdays issues ?
