[TH] Radeon R9 295X2 In CrossFire: 25 Billion Transistors Game At 4K

With that said, we had a good experience with AMD’s Radeon R9 295X2, and naturally wanted to see how two of them in a quad-CrossFire configuration behaved. At least right now, at 3840x2160, they’re like a three-year-old in Target. When you’re lucky, they’re little angels, boosting performance some (but not much). Other times, they have you questioning some of your life decisions. Maybe Ultra HD is bottlenecked by some other platform limitation, given this much graphics horsepower, and we really need to test a trio at 11,520x2160. But enough games demonstrated issues with smoothness, consistent frame delivery, and even dropped frames that I really don’t think so.

I really wish they would focus a bit more on multigpu scaling and certainly on timed frames. 3 and 4 way gpus would be killer deal on mid tier cards if it wasn't for all those problems. 400-700ms spike is really annoying after spending 3000$ on gpus alone, I guess nvidia's offering is just plain better for that uber end market.

Isn't this monitor acting like 2 separated monitor side by side or is it considered a single planel by the gpus? Heard it caused problem with amd's cards

I wonder if anyone has done 4 of these cards in one system if that's possible.
