The point where I started my benchmarking always was 45 FPS. In SLI mode and in normal mode it was 45 as well in some places. This is probably because this paticular spot was CPU limited except on the single GPUs in 8x mode.. You can see how its CPU limited as well if you take note of the 6800GT @ 1280x1024 where the min is 48. Thus CPU overhead of SLI probably consistently dropped the minimum framerate)) Heh I felt the areas I played were Smooth, ((beginning, DM_Canals 1-3, and 5-6)) but I admittedly did not play the entire game.
