Given the huge flexibility of the Extreme6 in terms of GPU configurations and solid backup from i7 processors and up to 24GB of high speed DDR3 running multi-screen gaming is without doubt something that is within reach of consumers who purchase these components. For this reason we set up a CrossFire system and connected it to three 23" 1920×1080 screens in Eyefinity mode. This allowed us to test Codemasters new DirectX 11 racing title, F1 2010, at 5760×1080.

When running at this ultra-high resolution on the Extreme6 and i7-970 the performance achieved by our system is excellent, never falling below 36 frames per second. This ensures smooth gameplay thoughout.

Here is a screenshot showing how F1 2010 looks at our tested settings:
