Resident Evil 6 Benchmark - Nvidia Surround - GTX 480 SLI


For comparison:

Resident Evil 6 Benchmark - Single Screen (1920 x 1200) - GTX 480 SLI

This benchmark pretty much sucks when it comes to Nvidia Surround. The overlays are in the wrong place, as well as oversized. You'll notice that certain character models will pop in and out of what the benchmark thinks is the viewable screen area. Performance is decent enough, though.

Just messing around in the sandbox editor in this video. The game actually runs smoothly for what I'm getting.

Great news! I will be upgrading to GTX 670 3-Way SLI soon! I've had the actual cards here for a little over a month now. I have been waiting for my new water blocks to get back in stock with a friendly online e-tailer. This week, I received word that they are finally in, and my shipment should be here soon, possible by this weekend! :onethumb: Until then, here are two more benchmarks that I ran with my "legacy" hardware:

Bioshock Infinite Gameplay - Nvidia Surround - GTX 480 SLI:


Crysis 3 Gameplay - Nvidia Surround - GTX 480 SLI:


Enjoy, friends! :twothumb:

I'm about to hit you all with a double whammy...can you handle it? I know that this is an 'older' game, but, I took advantage of the Origin game sale last week, and in light of all of the Battlefield 4 jazz that's going on right now, what the heck? Here we go!
