Default Re: So I got second GTX280

In fact, when enabling high amounts of AA in games like Oblivion, a single GPU setup actually ruins the experience by dropping into the 20s which is very choppy compared to a two-card setup that cruises along at 40+fps. During these tests there was no "lagging" or "stuttering" at all when ~45fps on the Crossfire setup. But there was tons of it on the single GPU:

Again man, what someone doesn't notice, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. People perceive things others don't. Other people experience things others don't notice until told... Again, if you don't notice it, it doesn't mean its not there. As I said, I have taken out my second GTX and I'm only using one. Wouldn't you think I'd notice if the dual card setup was smoother or the same as my single card? The hitches are gone, the sudden frame rate drops are gone... Sure, I can only run Crysis on High now, but it's not as if the experience on V.High was much better... In fact, it was worse... The issue exists, it's been documented again and again... Is everyone making stuff up?
