 StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Settings

Read our preview of StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm here.

The first point of note is that SLI and Crossfire scaling are pretty much non existant in StarCraft 2 so the performance shown above is very similar to the 670/680 and 7970. Additionally the game doesn’t support 5760×1080 which is disappointing as Blizzards other key titles, World of WarCraft and Diablo 3 both do.

So keeping those issues in mind it seems some driver optimisation is required for TITAN in SC2 as it hits the level we would normally expect from a 7970. Not that averaging over 100fps is a bad thing mind you, just not quite at the level we would expect. Probably more important than this though is that the frametime performance from the Titan is great with AMD suffering from a few larger spikes which could impact gameplay.

Here is an example of how the game looks at our tested settings.
