I dunno, I'm seeing somewhat positive results in some of these benchmarks, even though its a single GPU system. Others, obviously less than stellar.
But no, there's no reviews done yet with a multi GPU setup. I'd wait until OCN members get their hands on some of these chips. We'll see MUCH more accurate benchmarks at that point.
You can run the same bench 10 times and get 10 different results, margin of error.
Tests like BF3 beta have no single player, or a fixed run, or even a benchmarking tool. The only option would be to run it in either an empty world, which would fail to simulate actual load, or run it on a high pop sever, which would cause various different load stressing.
There isn't much of a difference, I wouldn't look at it as good or bad, simply gpu limited.
