just pointing out that you missed that part in your quotes.
not starting a war because I'm not getting either the 660 or 7870, at least not planning on it.
just stating facts.
Sorry, you are not stating fact, you are stating what you believe, I even quote what the ginger guy wrote:
From a single GPU perspective though, the Radeon HD 7870 is indeed faster than the GeForce GTX 660 in nearly all of our tests, whether that be single monitor or multi-monitor configurations. Buyers that are really only concerned with single card options then you might not care about the CrossFire or Eyefinity problems we have witnessed over the past two weeks.
When he says ALL our tests, it means Frame rating and RAW power and FPS. It means ALL TESTS.
So he says Nvidia Wins in Crossfire in Frame rating tests, and I don't even have hard time believing it. Lets wait for AMD to fix this, but since we know its only Dual GPU ... what about Single, Tri and Quad setups? Why he doesn't talk about more than two GPUs? He admit that AMD is better in single GPU, why not speak about the other setups such as Tri and Quad.
(You all even said that with the use of a third GPU, AMD is synchronizing perfectly.)
I even made a little graph for you to understand the scaling issue over two GPUs (off topic but worth showing you)
