The test was run at medium Quality and No AF and No AA....
Dont ask me why....

I can't wait for the next generation 4800's and 9900 ( or 200, what ever they are calling it this week), one single GPU is really where the performance increase is, not slapping two or three GPU's togather.
Look at the progression of CPU technology. Processors were single core and got more powerful over time. Servers and workstations began using two processors on one motherboard to gain processing power over a single CPU. Finally, the multiple core CPU was released which in the case of Intel for example (Core2Duo), blew away the previous, albeit higher clocked, single core (Pentium 4).

I just think multiple cores is going to be the way things progress from here on out; whether it be >4 core CPUs or dual-core GPUs.

Multi core's introduced multi threading, something that GPU's do massively and natively.

That is why there is a big push for GPGPU's, and its drawback, GPU's are great at doing many many things at once, no 1 thing very quickly, but breaking that one thing into 10,000 things and working on that.

Yes, multi-GPU's are great, however drivers have to be written for them, thus here SLI and crossfire is great, however some games offer zero performance increases.

200% more cost |= 200% more performance.

Nvidia and Crysis are best pals. Thus Nvidia cards will always come ontop.

A very BIASED test and unfair. So I would pretty much throw the above out the window..STOP testing crysis and use a more neutral application...

QFT. It's sad when only the Crysis benchmark is provided in comparisons.

Yeah...it will always go in Nvidia favour. Thus why they supported Crysis like mad...and to showcase there DX10 cards.

Although it does seem like they practically de-optimized Crysis just so they can have bragging rights as having a demanding game.

Same thing with Doom 3 preferring cards from the Green side and HL2 preferring cards from the Red Side.
