How much will this hurt performance AMD 6990?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Wondering if you guys can provide your insight on this.

Current Setup:
P8P67 Deluxe
AMD 6990

Considering the 8x/8x configuration once another GPU is added, how much performance will I lose if I added a 6970 for tri-fire? It's probably not quantifiable, but would you suggest upgrading my mobo to accommodate the 6970?

I ask this because I never realized that running a 6990 in 8x could potentially decrease its performance as opposed to running it at 16x.

Thank you in advance for those who respond

x8 has no noticeable performance loss from x16. [H] did a number of tests on this, go check their site if you wish to read the review on it.
