pretty poor scaling from most of those tests you ran imo...

I'm satisfied. Do u have numbers with your Tri CF? Believe scaling is terrible... :thumbdwn:

Very nice battery of tests. I wish they scaled better than they do in games. The only 2 items that the scaling was close to 100% were synthetic benchmarks (3DMark11 and Heaven)

It sort of shows me how pointless it is to get 2 high-end cards right now. I mean you did a very good set of tests, but it appears multi-card is not the way to go at the moment.

No offense, but <70% is what you showed in most of the games. The only tests that scaled good were synthetic tests which don't mean crap.

Also, yes I do have numbers of crossfire scaling. About ~90% with 3 cards, and ~100% with 2 cards.

I'm ok! :)

100% on games? I would like to see that... sadly ATI drivers for Crossfire are really screwed, that's the reason i sold my 5970.

You asked. Not 100%, but I did happen to get 100% in some of my own tests.

Oh, here is one of my 100% scaling...

Not bad at all... :thumbsup:

I have to install more games to add to topic.

Wondering how these guys test BC2...

Just noticed scaling is much better at 2560x1600... sadly my TV cant get that resolution.

Yeah, usually happens when you stress cards more. It's probably not as cpu limited.
