Shift 2: Unleashed – DirectX 9

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 testing was repeated at 5760×1080 with AA set to off and AF set to 2x.

Like Shogun 2 we see some great performance from these cards at 1920×1080, even when we max out the in-game settings. Moving to 5760×1080 with high settings (excluding AA/AF), the cards continue to perform well and offer completely smooth gameplay with the 6950 never falling below 45fps. In fact it is actually playable with anti-aliasing enabled.

Here is how the game looks at our tested settings.
