We decided to reintroduce Oblivion powered with Fraps and let me conclude it with it. We tested Nvidia cards in 8X FSAA mode in our custom developed test, a super-intensive routine with all the settings on. At 8xFSAA + 8xAniso and HDR SLI only makes a big stand over a single card in 16x12 and especially at 20x15. It is 21 per cent faster or 67 at 20x15.

ATI could not do more than 6X FSAA and even then it runs slightly slower than a single card. At 20x15 it is unplayable with a few FPS but at 4X FSAA it scores 27.26 FPS. This is still the game that can bring the G80 to its knees and SLI can make it barely playable with all effects on.

There ya go.
