AMD triple CrossFireX tested

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review:
HD 6990 and HD 6970 happily running side by side


Unlike
Nvidia’s SLI, AMD’s CrossFireX allows for daisy chaining a wider variety of cards. CrossFireX allows for pairing a dual and single GPU cards and we pounced on the chance to use HD 6990 and HD 6970. The following table is incomplete but gives a nice insight into CrossFireX’s capabilities.

neat scaling there.. should also work real well in higher resolutions due to 2gb ram per gpu

The temps are pretty awesome and leave room to tweak fan speed to decent noise levels.

The long of the short is that the Radeon 6xxx series are much more efficient and cheaper then any Fermi based solutions atm.

For $400 less and 200 Watts less you get +/- 5% FPS vs. 2x590 -- no brainer here.

Wheres retardo Warrior's comments when you need them?????

this is no surprise, ati/amd have scaled much better (in games that are coded for sli/crossfire) for many a year now. it's been like this since the 4000 series if i remeber correctly

Becausce it makes the GTX 590 SLI look stupid?

HD 6990 is an awesome card, seen them as low as £465 if you look around, great value imo.

Applying the term "value" to an Enthusiast card.. :P

It gets worse than this for the 590s if you actually review resolutions that 1000-1500 dollars of GPU would be using ie 5760X1200. Hardocp did a real comparison with a $1,000 price tag to create an even playing field and used real resolutions for that cost. WHO in their right minds buys quad 590s or 6990s to game at 1920X1080 or 2500X1600? Obviously at the higher resolutions it gets worse for Nvidia. The real comparison should be 6990+6970 versus 580SLI as Hardocp does.

Nothing wrong there... move along!
A top-end card can be of value if the gamer is an investor, some of them even make enough cash out of gaming in competitions to recoup the investment. That's value for you!
