3-way SLI GTX 480 Test [Hardware.info NL]
Title speaks for itself. Also included are benchies of 5870 in triple X-Fire and 5970 in X-Fire.
The original article is in Dutch so here's the link for the Google translate doc:

The temperatures are rather interesting but not surprising at the same time

Wow, still pretty high though, I like my Crossfire 5870s :) but when I run mine they dont go above 65c on 70% fan speed (other on 60%).

Thanks for the post:thumb:

Energy is kinda important to me... so seeing such a spread is just crazy.

I would really love to see a graph showing how well performance scales with energy use for these setups (performance/watt).
In most cases the 5970 XFire setup beats a two-card 480 SLI configuration, yet they draw considerably more power.

Lmao insane in the membrain... I also like that graph :)

well... that probably can go higher on a gpu synthetic benchmark -.- I bet you can push these over 1000w and some more when stress-testing + overclocking.

Wow that heat and power usage rapes all, the new KING in every aspect. :sad:

:shok: Even with that much power it stills loses ground in a few games.

It's certainly scaling pretty well though from single to 2-way to 3-way. That power consumption is nuts though. Haha

nice. so above 1920 go for gtx 480, 1920 and below stay with ati. i would love to see the number of folks who actually do game at those resolutions(above 1920)

so 4-way is a easy 1200W. I think I've seen that in trubutar's videos.
