Keeping in mind that 580 is already using 1.536 GB.
In SLI and CFX each bit inside the memory is exactly the same as on the other GPU, it's why if you SLI or CFX one 256MB card and one 512MB card both cards will only use 256MB RAM.

Its called "alternate frame rendering". Maybe I didn't understand the term "mirror". If GPU A=1gb and GPU B=1gb for a total of 2 in Xfire (lets make it easy)
They still only use 1GB of ram to render the frame. Why? Because you can only use one GPU at a time even if they are connected on the same board, in the same pci-e slut.
I think i like mirror, wrks for me. +1, 2U.

don't feel bad. there's alot of people that believe it will be a card with 3gb of vram that you see when in reality it will only have 1.5 seen. alot of review sites are misleading people by saying 3gb too.

I remember the launch date of the number 9 imagine 128 card 18 years ago. Had 4 mb of ram yet was considered top range and very expensive. Somehow the review had also an msdos game benchmark and the card scored low! Top gamer card was one with a chip i forgot and 1 mb of ram.

Things havent changed much in the mentality

Nvidia at the time of my 8800GTX SLi were kind of slow with the driver updates so I moved over to the 4870x2. But, about a year in time later - the drivers of ATi just progressively got worse and worse. They focus too much on the newer cards, forget the older cards, and it creates problems like disabling my 2nd GPU. What's the point of a 2 GPUs in 1 card if you're going to disable the 2nd GPU on me? Then what? I have to wait 4 months which is 4 driver revisions for you to fix the problem because they're too busy with newer cards to simply take time out to fix a tiny freakin problem with their crappy PowerPlay screwup?!

Im done taking chances with every driver release with AMD. It's a gamble every time I update. And it's not like I can't update, because then performance of newer games end up like crap.

I was so escited to get my shiny new 6870, that is until I needed fan speed of over 50% for my OC. Then my ears started to bleed. The fan noise coming out of the company that last generation was known to be light years quieter than the comparable Nvidia cards now sounded like a jet plane spooling for take off.

Then when I thought I couldn't take it anymore Nvidia released the 570 and I fell in love. Absolutely quiet at gaming loads even with fans at 70% and runs everything I own much more effortlessly than the AMD card. It was a win/win.

Unless AMD figures out a way to make fans like Nvidia I will not purchase another card from them. Why do AMD's fans make so much noise when Nvidia's don't seem to make any?
Thank you - someone else who has see's the problem with AMD lately. It's like everything went topsy-turvy when I decide to swap. When I go Nvidia, they're having some driver problems. When I go ATi, it's all good for the first couple of months then BAM: it's bad for another year or 2. It's uuuuugggghhh.

I get the feeling that my 2x 470's is getting old and out of date. I paid 1000$ for them!
