Fact. There was a review awhile ago with a 6950 at 4X/8X/16X speeds
The difference between 8X and 16X was 0. While the difference between 4X and 8X was half a frame a second and thats with a card thats twice as powerful as a 4870.
What determines bandwidth is how much the card can process.
Why is it so difficult for people to understand the difference between a single card @x16 vs. @x8 vs. @x4 to Crossfire/SLI one card @x16 and the other @x4 are two different subjects? lol
Is that the review for two cards, one @x16 and one @x4 in Crossfire or SLI?
Read the real user experince in the links provided then decide what you want to do.
Crossfiring on PCI-E (x16, x4)
