Default Re: Battle of the Giants: 5970 CrossfireX vs. 480 Tri-SLI

The point of the bench wasn't efficiency but raw power which is why the 5850 and 470 cards weren't included. I'd stay away from efficiency arguments when it comes to Fermi. Going to lose that argument most of the time due to their power requirements.
