I am joking
can you try with just 1 card at 1100-1150?
have no monitoring running during the run
The dips are from "dynamic fidelity" adjustments aka how often it reduced image quality to keep frame rates higher not fps dips, it's never dropped below 100 fps for me in any of my testing (at least in reference to the steam overlay)
Here's a run of the 290x alone at the same clocks, i would slap the OC on it but I don't have something like afterburner installed atm and this thing needs voltage to be stable even @ 1100
Several quality dips it would seem but the frame rate hovered between 100-110 fps for most of the test with occasional spikes higher, where with crossfire enabled it was closer to 130-140 (again based on watching the steam overlay)
I don't know, the test may not even directly relate to most of the games that actually use VR, not that it really bothers me either way as I currently don't have any plans to buy a headset until the early adopter phase is mostly over..
Out of curiosity I ran the test on my laptop and got rather odd results, wasn't expecting VR ready but the result didn't totally match what it displayed on screen. The fps average was ~90 with a few dips to 88 and one to 86. Here was the result, I assumed that it would be in the red, just...near the yellow. Considering this is pretty much the same score it gave the laptop running on the i7 4810MQ's GPU (something that averages closer to 14fps with dips to single digits and also manages to make it CPU bound based on the initial run before forcing it to use the 880m)
