Crossfire vs SLI Performance Comparison Review

Closer Look:

To run this sort of comparison, you have to have the video cards to do the testing. While there are only 11 different combinations being tested, it does not hit you until you sit down and unpack them all for a class photo as to how many there really are. A total of 16 cards all at once is a pretty big stack in my book. They range from the HD 4850 and GTX 260, all the way up to the GTX 295 and HD 4870x2. The only one left out was the GTX 275, as they just did not make it in time for the testing. So take a minute to bask in the ambiance of some high-end video horsepower. I had to sit back and just look for a while myself.












Enough looking, let's see what they can do! I want to see just how well the big boys perform without all the benchmark guru OS tweaking and extreme cooling, to see what the average guy or gal can come up with just by slapping a few cards into his or her pride and joy!
