    Hey guys,
    tried a search before posting but found no strict answers.:ohwell:

    I currently have an ASUS EAH6950 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5 Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 card, and i would like to know if there is a chance to run Battlefield 3 (Medium-High settings) with Eyefinity using this card.

    And if not, what should i do? (Crossfire or buy a newer card)

    Thanks :toast:

    Card should run sweet , @BF3 u should get atleast 8GB ram for your machine.....
    Eyefinity is a displayport , depends on your monitors if u can connect em to it
    (they have adapters mini HDMI like (eyefinity) -> DVI

    Cool, i have enough RAM for that.
    Using HDMI to DP adapters would be ok ?

    Thanks again.

    Sorry, i wrote DVI instead of HDMI by mistake.

    My monitors have only HDMI/VGA ports.

    on medium, a single 6950 might give 30-40 FPS.


    same settings, 7950 will give 60 FPS.


    I do not recommend 6-series crossfire with Eyefinity. I went one, two, three, then four 6950's, ended up with dual 7950's, which play on 5670x1200 @ high settings only.
