Oh really ?!
Why you don't show us some of those reviews, instead of just saying that "other reviews tell a different story" ?
All the reviews I saw
except the one from Experience(dot)com are showing that 8800GT in SLI beats HD3870 crossfire on most cases.
Call of Duty 4 : Crossfire vs. SLI: Radeon HD38x0 vs GeForce 8800 GT
This another review that shows that 8800GT SLI performs better in many games specially in popular games such as COD4 and Crysis
Note: This review is using the same driver that was used at Experience(dot)com
In that review, they're using a beta driver not actually available to the public (first driver made for 3870 X2's), for all their ATI cards.
So, what ?
AMD lovers will always try to find excuse by blaming drivers
Anyway, the performance of 8800GT SLI and HD3870 crossfire vary a lot from game to game. At least, say that HD3870 crossfire performs on par with 8800GT SLI. But don't try to say that HD3870 crossfire is better because that is questionable
I'm going to use Catalyst 8.2 for my 3870's.
Nvidia video cards are getting better performance in SLI after each driver release as well
