True, but many sites like HardOCP and Hardware Canucks are reporting that the 7979 in Crossfire looks superior on paper but in reality SLI feels better than CrossFireX, it feels smoother, and is more fluid?
I can't really comment either way since I don't own a 7970 crossfire setup to test for myself, but at least they are available to buy unlike the 680/690s. All i really want is a new driver from Nvidia for my GTX 680 SLI
