Yeah its normal.

The higher the resolution you go, the more the card needs to work, so the bandwidth make it less of an issue, as the CPU has to wait every time to send more data to the GPU.

On lower resolutions, the needs to work less, so its starve for data from the CPU because of the low bandwidth of the PCIE.

Ahh, that makes perfect sense. So as long as I keep my resolutions and graphics settings up as high as possible, it won't matter that I have one of my cards on an x4 lane. Good to know! Time to buy a 30"! biggrin.gif

I might be able to contest if I go SLi.
Not yet though, very happy with current performance but in the future, wha boom!
Hehe.

Check your scores smile.gif
Its because of your CPU, and not your GPUs.

You actually get a higher GPU score, but if you check, your CPU score was much lower.

Going to 4.5 doesn't mean your score is higher.
What you did a 4.5 in CPU score I can do at 4.2, by just power housing the uncore, which has the most effect on the CPU score in 3dmark tests.

Check this score as an example:
http://3dmark.com/3dm11/274880 (don't worry, its 3 cards. System info was buggy).
You can see that the GPU score is a bit lower than yours, and its even on the beta drivers.
But the CPU score is higher, even tho its clocked just below 4.5.

Its all about uncore baby! biggrin.gif
It also affect the GPU score a bit.

Just one of the little secrets of 3dmark testing wink.gif

Bumped the uncore up some and got to

I think I'm going to swap the Super Talent in the Corsair stuff does not seem to have the headroom at timings I like.
