Shift 2: Unleashed – DirectX 9 and Eyefinity

Shift 2 is based on the cross-platform Madness Engine which also powered the original Shift. This latest version adds tweaks for enhanced realism when compared to the older game.

Testing was performed at 1920×1080 and maximum in game settings were enabled. Then for the Eyefinity result the test was repeated at 5760×1080 with no anti-aliasing and 2x anisotropic filtering.

On the last page we saw Inno3D’s card take the lead but the GeForce doesn’t get everything its own way and when we play SHIFT 2: Unleashed we see some excellent performance from the PowerColor card. In fact we can even take advantage of one of the unique features which PowerColor and AMD offer, three screen gaming from a single card where our PCS++ never drops below 41fps which is an excellent result for 5760×1080.

Here is how the game looks at our tested settings.
