Default Re: XFX 6800 XT SLi AMD 64 3500 Corsair

Did you accidentally get stuck with the 8 pipe XT's with 128 bit memory bus? Check it out in Rivatuner. If that's the case, then, well, i wouldn't expect more than X800XT level performance from those two cards, which in their crippled configurations are basically low-clocked 6600's. Speaking of clocks, it'd also be nice to know what clockspeeds you rin everything at as far as your vidcard go...

If I remember correctly, 12-pipe 6800's with a 256 bit memory interface should score 10k in 3dmark 03 in a config like yours... so an ~8500 score indicates at the very least that you're running with a further disabled quad at the least...

And what game are you seeing the fps disparity in?
