Default ATi crossfire Benchmarks are in!!

For those of you waiting for the benchmarks for a Crossfire system, here they are (3DMark05):

Using 2x ATI Radeon X850XT: 9967

Using 1x ATI Radeon X850XT and 1x X850XT PE: 10646

Pretty good considering the world 3DMark05 record is 14623 with 2x6800U in SLI and with crazy-mad OCing.


Intel E6750...........PSN: ELBATROP
XFX nForce 650i Ultra
Patriot PC2-6400 8GB (4x2GB)
eVGA 9800GT
36GB WD Raptor
120GB SG
Logitech X-530
Samsung SyncMaster 931c
Samsung SyncMaster 750s

meh, a single 6800GT on a good system with a high end CPU can generally get 4900 or 5000 in 3dmark05, and so SLId a 6800GT can generally hit 10K....not to mention those benchmarks are biased towards ATI as it is, and two of the ATI flagship cards (well I guess it's not THE flagship since it's not PE) only hits 9967?

Going from two XT's to adding in that one XTPE seemed to make quite a difference though, but considering how much "better" those X850s are supposed to be compared to the 6800Us the scores seem to suck IMO.........mind you when I say it sucks I realize that it'd still easily play every game on the market, but I'm just saying it from comparitive point of view.

Indeed not very impressive when you factor in the price, especially when you consider 3Dmark is intensive DirectX benching which should give ATi the advantage anyways...

I will say that I like the idea of crossfire being able to use any two existing cards, they don't have to be exactly the same as with SLI meaning a card you buy now can still be used in the future for that little extra performance. Although that won't be true at this point and time as the x800 and under cards are PS3 equipped so adding them to a Fudo or above card would hinder the capability of the fudo altogether.

I don't like the master/slave concept either.
