Default Crossfire Benchmarks

Check this out:-

http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/...ce/default.asp

Looks like, overall, a Crossfire X850 XT setup is roughly on par with a SLI 6800 Ultra setup, and fractionally ahead of a single 7800 GTX. Well, exept for the F.E.A.R. Beta that is:



Ouch . Most probably a driver issue or other bug though.

Hmm... Seems no-one here is remotely interested in dual X850 XT's... unless I was behind the time in posting this topic.

well, after reading the CrossFire review on HardOCP, I now know to stay away from crossfire. and yeah, nobody realy cares about crossfire because ATI aparently got shot in the crossfire (Aha! get it! got SHOT in the CROSSFIRE! lol sorry, bad pun) with its complicated set up, and all around worthlessness.

EDIT: here's the HardOCP review, http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=ODE1

I think the dude who runs hardocp is heavily nvidia biased....I may have him confused with someone else though, but I think that's the case.

I don't get where they are getting that from...it has the lowest scores on the chart....what's it ahead of exactly?

Has to be bad drivers if two are getting less than one lol
