The striker is different though, its not a reference board. Its the nvidia reference boards that have the vast majority of problems.

Fudzilla - 9800 GX2 clearly wins over 3870 X2

Fudzilla is only about an ounce more reliable than inquierer though. I'll wait until some REAL benchmarks come out.

WTF, he just says its going to be better, he doesnt even offer a reason. No wonder i never read that site.

Actually some stuff scales all the way to 100% in crossfire. I just wish ati would hurry up and release a card that is actually competitive with nvidia, because not everything works with dual card setups and you then end up falling back on a single card, so its nice to have a single card that can actually run stuff.

I'm talking about Minimums tho, but yes, sometimes it does go up to 100%
