The latest installment of Capcom’s popular survival horror series just arrived for PCs a few days ago. As is often the case with console ports, it’s not particularly GPU starved, and can crank out high numbers on just about anything.
The 5850 once again defeats all earlier cards, and the 5850 Crossfire does the same to all multi-GPU solutions. Here we also see AMD’s fortunes reverse on the multi-GPU scaling front, where the GTX 285 SLI doesn’t beat the 5850 Crossfire like it has in past benchmarks.
