9800 gx2 is really impressive

post #1 of 78
Thread Starter 
for a single card. I have yet to try any benching wiht my second card but man... best I got out of my sli 9600 was 19110 with HOURS of testing and running at way unstable clock speeds. Now the 9800 gx2 manages 19970 with my 24/7 settings!

expensive but I am liking it more and more everyday.

You know what.. I am not surprise your 9800GX2 SLI x 2 probably would get lower FPS, poor performance than a single 9800GX2 card setup.

I will just wait for GT260 SLI x2, probably will blow your 9800GX2 thousand miles away...

I have very good reasons to suggest 2 9800GX2 would have poorer performance. Here are the reasons:

1. You have a 19' LCD
2. Current 750i/780i/790i chips + BIOS do not scale well with 3+ GPU's.
3. Inmature driver software
4. Overall poor SLI in-games support. (poor scalability)
5. Poor Card Stock cooler Design
6. WinXP better than Vista in term of SLI scalability.
