I appreciate you informing everyone of the issues, but with repetition, your selective posting comes across as inflammatory instead of constructive.

This has been pointed out to him a million times. He doesn't care or is too dense to understand it. I put him on ignore a while ago, but with everybody quoting him I see that was pointless of me.

The dude is a tool, a shill for nVidia. In all his attempts to place nVidia on a pedestal he does them more harm than good imo. His attempts to promote them as a company result in the exact opposite. I'm really wanting to upgrade my GPU and naturally am hoping keplar brings something to the table but it irks me to think I'd but "on his side". The dude is a lame, old, irritating joke and nothing more.

It's almost like his sole purpose of existance is to run damage control for nVidia. Even when they don't need it, it's his job to slander AMD at every possible turn and sing praise to nVidia.

Specific games not scaling is common to both SLI and crossfire, such as skyrim not scaling at all in SLI for instance and the game has been out for a while now, and it also has the same problem in crossfire too...


Mind you, i don't play the game but it's a problem common for both companies and their multi GPU tech so no one is better than the other here if we're going to count all the specific cases, and there are a few of them...

The topic should not be closed because ATI fans are attempting to get it closed. The people posting off topic should be warned and their posts deleted. I've posted more factual, verified infornation in this thread than some of the naysayers have posted in a month. If kepler launches to this backlash Ill post that too. The forums should be about making info like this known, not hiding it.

We're not attempting anything of the sort, just that issues with multi GPU setups are common with both companies, and not great with one company and awfull with it's competitor that just released new cards on the market....


I'd love to see you post this intensively if Kepler and it's multi GPU support are rough for the first few months until it's drivers are more or less sorted out, but i know it'll never happen with you....

So let me get this straight... When multiple forum users post bad reports with SLI, they are all the same person with a vendetta against nvidia. Only proper review sites can be trusted to report on such matters!

When one person using a rather uncommon OS reports of an issue with CF it's a major problem and it's your duty to let everyone everywhere know.

Nice double standards, once again.

Deleting a thread is hiding. Locking a thread is for when a thread no longer becomes useful.

1. This thread isn't about SLi
2. I did IP checks on those people with the vendetta and proved they had multiple accounts, then other site admins used the IP addresses to verify. (again, fact, not my "guesses")
3. There are seven professional websites linked to in this thread noting these issues with ATi products. I'll post more as I see them.
4. I invite you to try to find a group of seven editors writing about SLi problems on a card's launch. I don't think you can find it. OTOH, I know I can do the same with previous ATi product launches , because this isn't the first thread like this I've created.
