CF 6970 scaling and performance

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Good Day Gents,

I have been toying with the idea of running a pair of CF 6970's. What say you ATI GPU experts what sort of performance increase can I expect coming from a single GTX 580. How are the scaling and drivers on these cards? I was disappointed with the drivers stability during my run with the 5870/5970 GPU's
Before it gets out of hand, reason why I don't want to simply just get another 580 is that I don't wanna get a new PSU just to power 2 of em in SLI.

Thanks in advance

I'd estimate around a 35-40% global fps increase from your 580.

I know this is a bit old of a review...but it shows the difference between a single 580 and crossfired 6970s..
