[hexus] AMD CrossFireX preview - quad-GPU scaling to new heights - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Crysis was purposely programmed inefficiently to give it a bigger e-peen. Don't be fooled.

But these results are looking good, I'm happy with my purchase so far and when these drivers get in my hands I don't think I'll be disappointed.

Gameplay, community support, and online hackers aside Crysis is a monster.

I wonder how long it will be before we see a card actually dominate the game. The good thing for me is that the GTX after a fan replacement will last at least another year.

No. You can only pair cards that have the same core, that said you can do any combination involving 3850's, 3870's, and 3870 X2's.

It's too bad there are no intel-compatible CrossfireX chipsets.

The 3 vs 1 results are pretty impressive. Since most of the best 790fx boards can only fit 3 cards with dual slot coolers that seems like a good choice for max performance.
