2GB GTX560 SLi Surround benches
 
Decided to do some benching with the Palit 2GB GTX560Ti SLi rig. PC is an i7 870 @ 3.36, 4GB RAM, Win 7 64.

I don't think this data is anywhere on the net, so hopefully it will be of some use to a person considering such a configuration.

All benches at 57 X 10 @ 120Hz, with 16AF on in CP, default Quality setting. Settings to highest in game except where noted.

Mafia 2 In game bench
AA Off, Physx Off: 66.5 fps ave
AAOff, PhysX High: 32.5 fps ave
AA Off, PhysX Med: 36.9 fps ave
3D Vision On, AA Off, PhysX Off: 26.3 fps ave
3D Vision On, AA Odd, PhysX Off, Ambient Occlusion Off, Shadows Low: 31.0fps ave

Just Cause 2 Dark Tower bench
3D Vision On: 27.56 fps ave
0X AA: 65 fps ave
2X AA: 61.84 fps ave
4X AA: 58.61 fps ave

Far Cry 2 Ranch Small bench
3D Vision On, 2X AA On: 38fps ave/58 fps max/32 fps min
3D Vision On, 0X AA: 40fps ave/58fps max/37 fps min
4X AA 76fps ave/104 fps max/ 57 fps min

So there you have it, 2GB GTX560 Sli makes a pretty good 1080p surround solution and a mixed bag 3d Vision Surround solution.

I'd buy two 2GB GTX560s over two 6950s for the following reasons:
1. Some games run pretty well in 3D Vision Surround, like L4D, FC2, UT2004. Not possible on the 6950s.
2. The 3D and PhysX are MUCH more playable on a 1080P single panel, giving a user more flexibility in display choices.
3. TWIMTBP ensures popular games launch with SLi profiles, CF users wait.

Re: 2GB GTX560 SLi Surround benches
 
I ran some of the benches with GTX480 SLi for comparison. 560 results standard text, 480 results in italics:

Mafia 2 In game bench
AA Off, Physx Off: 66.5 fps ave 75.2 fps ave
AAOff, PhysX High: 32.5 fps ave 32.6 fps ave
AA Off, PhysX Med: 36.9 fps ave
3D Vision On, AA Off, PhysX Off: 26.3 fps ave 36.2 fps ave
3D Vision On, AA Odd, PhysX Off, Ambient Occlusion Off, Shadows Low: 31.0fps ave

Just Cause 2 Dark Tower bench
3D Vision On: 27.56 fps ave 36.93 fps ave
0X AA: 65 fps ave
2X AA: 61.84 fps ave
4X AA: 58.61 fps ave 75.47 fps ave

Far Cry 2 Ranch Small bench
3D Vision On, 2X AA On: 38fps ave/58 fps max/32 fps min
3D Vision On, 0X AA: 40fps ave/58fps max/37 fps min 40fps ave/59 max/39 min
4X AA 76fps ave/104 fps max/ 57 fps min 74 fps ave/104 fps max/58 fps min


The 480GTX SLi results above definitely show the 560 SLi's value as a Surround solution. The 480s had a 30%+ advantage on 3d Vision Surround at Mafia2 and Just Cause2. My guess is I'm CPU limited at Far Cry2 as it benches the same with GTX560 SLi or GTX480 SLi.
