I guess I was wrong.....not.

I've tested enough AMD vs intel multi GPU scaling, and seen enough reviews to know they lag behind intel at scaling.

It does not seem implausible to me that the Beefdozer would come in third at CF scaling, as it comes in third at 16X10 and lower res gaming often enough. Why would the weakest CPU have the best scaling?

I am fairly disappointed that crossfire scaling while good is severely hampered on the AMD cpu compared to almost every Core I series cpu
