9600GT SLI Performace Comparison in Crysis

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I scanned this from CustomPC magazine (UK) showing the results of SLI and Crossfire testing they did in their newest issue. This shot is of Crysis.

The 9600GT beats out the 8800GT in both resolutions. And at 1680x1050, only 2x 3870X2. 3x 8800GTX and 3x 9800GTX is faster.

Pretty impressive considering the price difference when putting an SLI rig together.

I'm not saying anything, I'm just suprised by the results.

According to CustomPC the 9600GT was pretty much the only card worth running in SLI.

I absolutely agree! 9600GT is the only card worth SLI. In fact, I already knew that long long ago. Other high end cards for SLI are just overkilled (except for crysis).

This is why SLI/Crossfire are half-baked technologies only good for enhancing the performance of aging cards.

I would suggest postpone the SLI and just get a single bad ass card like GT260 or GT280, enjoy it until it begin to show its age and most games begin to choke your card, then and only then get the second card for SLI.

If you must setup an SLI now regardless of any logical reasons, yes go for 9600GT.

Thats odd. I;ve read no less than 5 reviews that had the 8800gt in sli ahead in almost every category.

I'll provide some links.

Neoseeker has it slanted for 8800gt by a fair margin in most tests, only crysis is slightly faster

I got my info from one magazine article. But it was a very indepth analysis of all the popular ATi and nVidia cards. They were tested in a lot of different games, ArmA, COD4, COH:OF, Crysis, Dirt, Need For Speed: Pro Street, Oblivion, Stalker, Supreme Commander and TF2 and the only games the 8800GT in SLI beat the 9600GT was in COD4 and Dirt. This was at 1860x1050. At 1920x1200 it was a little different, the 8800GT also won in Oblivion, Need for Speed and TF2, but not by much.

8800gt seems to be the winner in SLI according to this review though strangely they are recommending the 9600gt sli?. Anywho it looks like the 9600gt would be good for someone gaming on a res of 1680 or lower but anything above I would go 8800gt. Price wise they are about the same price too.

Why would you recommend the 8800GT for higher resolutions? I don't see why one would perform better over the other in that regard.
