Wooho! look how bad the mighty "X2" performs here,.. that's some seriously bad scaling lol.

Everyone knows crossfire doesn't scale that well in Crysis.

Also it's not exactly correct to compare the GTX 260 216 to the GTX 295. It might be clocked the same but it has the same amount of stream processors on each GPU as the 280. So it's more or less the equivalent to 2 hypothetical "GTX 270s" in SLI.

There's a texture tweak though that fixes the problem. You can see it in the Crysis forum, it happens to 3-way SLI'd GTX 280s. But at that resolution I doubt it's even playable on that kind of setup. In that chart the X2 might scale better but it's not exactly an acceptable framerate.

R OLY?

i mean... man didn't know that. Well, it doesn't scale too good in other games aswell.

alpha drivers issue... ATI had a good long time to optimize their drivers...

I didn't know sli was so new, surely this isn't nvidia's first sandwich card is it?
