Same story here too in the 1080p Xtreme Preset. Too bad it couldn't overclock…

In the AvP DX11 benchmark, it even manages to overtake the overclocked HD 7970, which is an amazing feat

This is where reality hits – Batman Arkham City and other games (COD:MW3, Skyrim, Red Orchestra 2…) which are not so Crossfire friendly will show poor or no or even negative scaling. Multi-GPU cards by nature are at the mercy of game developers and driver teams.
