Radeon HD 5970 Crossfire Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 5970 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon HD 5970 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 5970 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is only up to 12% better than a single Radeon HD 5970 performing by itself but it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 5970. Expect this combination to draw up to 588 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
