Call of Duty: Black Ops

We played MP Combat Training Villa map to win, at 1920x1080, Highest settings with 4xMSAA/16xAF.

No scaling for GPU frequency indicates the frame limiter caps maximum performance and CPU limits the minimum frame render time.

CrossFireX:

CPU limited minimum FPS loses performance with the overhead of multi-GPU.

Eyefinity

We ran the test at Eyefinity resolution using our 3 displays in Portrait configuration, increasing our resolution to 3240x1920 (plus bezel compensation).

CrossFireX Eyefinity:

CoD:BO's 90FPS frame limit stops any frequency or multi-GPU scaling until Eyefinity resolutions are reached. Use Enhanced AA modes like MLAA, Adpative AA, Super Sampled AA or >8X MSAA to use the power of mGPU 7870 in this title.
