Just for S'n'G's
I ran it at 1680X1050 with 8xAA and 8xAF
Score = 9000, basically sm2/3300 sm3/3300 cpu/2700
Which I gotta say Im pretty impressed with.
I have found another oddity. During a bench like 3dmark, one specifically designed to isolate gpu vs cpu, using Rivatuner neither card actually gets to 100%.
It avg's at about 60. It peaks at 80. With a single card, it is just maxed out. Now if you do the math this makes perfect sense.
being two cards, avg at 60%, you'd have 120% of a single card. Which is almost exactly what I'm getting for an increase.
Can anyone with a working Xfire setup, tell me if theirs is the same way? Because that seems most odd.
