Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is the latest in a long line of Call of Duty games from Activision. The game is set in the present time with modern weapons and is a great game for the holiday season. The game runs completely smooth on the HD 5970 from XFX with no slowdowns even when the setting was set to 16x FSAA and 16x AF which is the maximum setting a single card can handle.

Dirt 2 is the first DirectX 11 game on the market. While other games like Battle Forge and Dragon Age Online have claimed DirectX 11 support Dirt 2 is the first game to use DirectX 11 to visually change the way the game looks while playing. This game was playable at 1920x1200 on the XFX Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition card with beautiful visuals and graphics. Dirt 2 got frame rates in the 60s at those settings.

Crysis is the game by which virtually every video card has been measured in the last few years for good reason. The game requires a monster of a card to run completely smoothly and the HD 5970 is just such a card. The XFX card ran the game at 1920x1200 with 8x FSAA and 16x AF with high frame rates throughout most of the game. The combination of two HD 5870 chips on one card is indeed a powerful beast.
