I just hopped onto triple HD 5870 Crossfire myself. Only running a baby OC at this time of 900|1250. Below is my first swipe at Vantage using the Extreme preset.



ORB - Compare

I already had an HD 5870 and recently picked up the two additional cards.

LMAO.

Anyone getting well over 100 FPS in CPU test 2 is using GPU PhysX despite what they may believe or say.

Here you see a 4.7GHz Xeon only doing 35 FPS in CPU test 2.

As far as gaming goes below is an interesting article that shows HD 5870 Crossfire on many different CPUs and at different resolutions. 4.0GHz i7 and Phenom IIs are included.

Or maybe physx is disabled via nvidia control pannel and there isnt really any other way for physx to run.. No IGP to run it, no secondary card, and GTX 295 doesnt have physx turned on, you explain how physx is being used..
