Well, it's less than triple my oc'd 470 score. And lowfat's SLI 460 score is only 17% higher than mine. So the benchmark doesn't scale well for SLI?

I think the results look pretty good to me. His results are 2.35x higher than GTX460 SLI.

You can't do a tessellation test on a card that doesn't support tessellation chris, its DX11 if i'm not mistaken

I believe you can turn the Tessellation option off, so it can run on DX9/10 cards. Whether that will produce comparable results I don't know.

I know. I saw Lowfats question about trying to run on a DX10 card so I gave it a shot to see if it would run anywho. If he meant by messing with the settings, then OK but I thought he wanted default settings.

But it was an OpenGL benchmark, which is why I was curious to see if older cards would work.
