It's mis-interpreted, an 8600GT at that resolution & AA/AF could pull 15FPS on average imo.

I still dont understand why people are flaming the 8600gts when it plays all dx9 games perfectly at sane resolutions. And sli 8600gts in 3dmark come close to the performance of a 8800gts for about the same price so its not that badder card.

you guys are missing the point. it says "relative FPS".

The single card is the benchmark. it's just showing how well the FPS scales with SLI.

The 8600GTS is 1.0 because it is the baseline.

Hope you all feel good about bashing a perfectly fine card.

all the graph is stating is that relatively with frame rates in SLI its TWICE as many frame rate (or close to) as a single card. Not that it gets 1fps or 1.95 fps

Combine this with the fact that the 8600GT's OC like mad and most 8800 owners are too scared to OC their cards more than 100mhz, and you have equivalent performance for $100 less.

Hurts don't it 8800 owners?

Before you flame, keep in mind that unlike most of the people in this thread that are bashing, I have owned both the 8800 320mb and 640mb, AND the 8600GT. So if you don't have personal experience with BOTH cards... QFT!!!!!

On the bright side, he would get about a 95% performance boost in SLI... haha.

I've volt modded and overclocked the hell out of my 8800GTS. And most 8800 owners have OC'd the hell out of their cards too, so don't start with the whole "Your just too much of a wuss to overclock your 8800" ****.

And, trueg50, that's what I kinda though... But, I am quiet retarded.

Wow. You guys take everything way to seriously, notice how the first half of the replies were just people laughing...?

CuriouslyHigh: If that was true, everybody would laugh and nobody would buy one. What's your point?

Pretty sure it's an SLI vs Single card comparison test, not actual frames.

At least half or more of 8800 owners mildy OC their cards, and MANY say they don't even feel an urge to OC them at all. I've heard it said a hundred times on this forum alone.

I never stated that ALL 8800 owners don't OC their cards past 600 core. Your response is the classic, "but I'm a special exception to your highly generalized statement so that means you are completely wrong!!!"

Remember that not everyone has a lifetime/all inclusive warranty, and not everyone is willing to risk their $300-400 card by pushing it to squeeze an extra 10% of performance out of it. As has been stated before $100 is a lot easier to swallow if you fry an 8600, especially for the thrifty or budget limited folk. Even if you fried one of your SLI pair and had to replace it, you still would be basically broken even with cost/performance ratio of an 8800.

I've owned both, and the bottom line is that you don't get as much of your money's worth for the 8800's vs. the 8600's.

edit: Additionally, the cooling needed to handle a v-modded 8800 vs. v-modded 8600 is in a whole different league and price range. If I were to purchase an 8800GTS and use anything but the stock cooling I would just fork out the extra cash for a GTX instead.
