Yep. 3 GPUs against 3 GPUs. I was right all along.

500$ less, less power-hungry, higher performance. MAJOR win for AMD.

Nice to see more variety, and less bias, while being pro-consumer all in stride. I have a feeling that this will be a sore spot for a while. Also, what were the specs of their test setup? I'm probably missing where they list them.

I really like HardOCP reviews. They are not like the typical reviews on ''Paid'' sites like HardwareCanucks, Anand, Bit-tech, etc...

Why do you think Anand are holding back the SLI vs Crossfire scaling part 2 review?

I think their results with 11.4 are probably like those on HardOCP, but Nvidia are paying alot of $ to Anand, so... they are holding those results back.

HardOCP are also one of the few testing multi-screens set-ups. Tired of those 1080p reviews we can read everywhere. Those high-end cards are for high-end set-ups.

11.4 drivers are a great improvement for AMD cards, and that latest HardOCP review is just proving that fact. AMD is totally owning Nvidia right now, even in 3 GPUs config.

500$ less. 200W less. Come on. That's pure raping.

Glad to see AMD pull out a win. I was just asking what specifications they used for their test system out of curiosity, because you and I both know that any deficiency will be called out by competitors in the other camp...

I've tested this with several games such as NFS:HP and Oblivion, thinking that maybe the AA quality just wasn't as good as the 5970's. However GPU usage is exactly the same no matter what amount of AA I force, meaning it's not being applied.

What gives? Anyone else experience this?
I guess nobody's interested in helping anymore. :|
