The FuturMark 3DMark06 testing is where you are going to see the overall performance of all of the cards and the CrossFireX setup was unable to compete very well with the SLI setup. It was beaten by almost 1,000 3D Marks in the 2560 x 1600 Overclocked testing. The single card setup was about 500 3D Marks away from the Sapphire HD5770 OC in the same test.
