XFX GeForce 9800 GX2 Quad SLI Versus ATI CrossFireXTue, Mar 25, 2008 - 12:00 AM
3DMark 06 is the worldwide standard in advanced 3D game performance benchmarking and the latest version in the popular 3DMark series! 3DMark06 tests include all new HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, advanced SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of comprehensive feature tests to reliably measure next generation gaming performance today.
Default 3DMark06 settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1280×1024 was used.
Benchmark Results: The GeForce 9800 GX2 Quad-SLI setup didn’t seem to like 3DMark2006 too much and turned in a score that was just 317 points higher than a single GeForce 9800 GX2. The ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 showed over a 1,000 point increase when moving from a single card to Quad-CrossFireX
Benchmark Results: The SM 2.0 and 3.0 scores show what we would expect other than the SM 2.0 decreased on the Quad-SLI setup.
