Is it comparable like an 8800GTS 640Mb? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Thanks for all your comments guys! I just wanted to set that straight!

Since I build my friends PC he was wondering about the 8600GT in SLI
at that moment it made a bit of sense but I kinda figured it would not work so thanx to all for clarifying that!

Your results proves my point from my previous post. Buying 2 8800GTS cards only gave you an increase of 3000 3DMark06 points over mine, and I'm using a single GTS 320Mb. Had you spent that on a single 8800 Ultra, you would have a score of 16k or 18k, or more.

Save money and avoid SLi. It doesn't give that great of results for how much you pay. It breaks the price/performance ratio.

If only because it has three times the stream processors.. even with two 8600s in SLI, you'll only have 64. a 8800GTS has 96.

sli/crossfire seems to be more for the bragging rightsn and synthetic applications. for anything else or trying to be reasonable sli/crossfire is a waste. only expection to that is if you just happen to have two of the same cards lying around for some reason or another. at that point might as well put it to use.


EDIT: depending on the board also sli/crossfire is limited as some only support x16/x4 or x16/x8. so the second card is crippled from the start.
