My System Specs

Smile Video Cards

Yes, I would like to see results comparing the higher end cards from red and green. Wondering how the 580 will do?

Jeez,

In that TPU review of 6870 xfire, at 1920 X 1200, you get almost double the FPS in most tests...what more to expect???

Nothing was changed in the CF scaling between Cypress and Barts.
SKY!
Can you elaborate? I mean it SEEMS that the situation is better...is it just driver optimization, better hardware, or pure fiction? I remember the HD5870 numbers in XFIRE being not so impressive (inconsistent basically)...now, these HD6870 seem better.

What's wrong? Anything we're missing?
