Default Re: 6970 Trifire benchmarks.

I have 3x 6970's + 1200W PSU in my newegg cart right now...very tempted to buy...although the little voice in my head says that a 3rd GTX 470 would be a better idea.

As a single card they are VERY cool. But when you stack them the temps just get insane. 101+c load. The ghetto rigging however dropped load temps 12c.

Given that you already have 2 470's I'd agree

Not to raid on your parade, but 16Q AA in the Crysis benchmark is a nVidia AA methode, so I think it still uses 4xAA then(?) But it should be almost the same with 8xaa. Nice scaling though, and I think performance will be even better now with 11.4 preview drivers.

Keep in mind that sometimes you can sqeeze even more perf. when experimenting with different exe's (Bioshock exe for Crysis2 for example) Also Mass Effect(2) ran much faster after renaming the gamexe to AFR-FriendlyD3D and 8xSSAA is no problem and looks awesome.

Also there is some perf diffrence between the 32 and 64 bits exe in Crysis.
