Yup, I'm still aware of it but the review showed some improvement in crossfire. I guess I should wait for the triple and quad reviews (most likely from enthusiast) to explore. Hopefully after the Eyefinity pacing patch.

Crossfire via PCI-E will only cause problems depending on what speeds you run the PCI-E slots at and how many cards you are crossfiring, as well as the resolution you play at.
Crossfire on a single screen was fixed in the July/August driver. But eyefinity is still borked. Pcper made (or ppl made) waves when they pointed this out after 290X was announced. Since 4k is actually running in split screen, it may skew 4k results as well. Unless Amd has a beta patch they or the reviewers ran.
The tom's review shows a pretty good improvement vs Tahiti crossfire. And they do mentioned its almost as good as sli nvidia, though its still within a respectable range. The patch may just make it almost like Nvidia.
Such a hard decision, the longer I wait, the less money I can get for my 780s. I would wait for the Lightning with (hopefully) three dp if I go amd to run 5x1 w/ one hub (other wise I have to buy two MST hubs). Wish I could find Titans cheap since my blocks are Titan blocks
. Nvidia, why you no give us 5x1 Surround or 4-way 780 (officially) Edited by wermad - 10/24/13 at 3:55pm
