The GPU yes, but the CPU use is a joke.

I'm having the same framerate in Crysis with my quad than with my old Athlon X2.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that people who get the chance to compare 9800GX2 to a GTX 280 will find that the GTX 280 is the superior card due to lack of multi-gpu related issues, much lower idle power consumption, and massive advantage in framebuffer size.

The WiC results are all that is needed.

I'm guessing that crysis isn't up to par with that driver yet, as stated in other threads. The 177.34 driver should provide better results.

MY 2nd GTX isn't in this pc atm, so I just did a quick single run.

1920 x 1200 high settings (2x AA / 2x AF)

min: 20
avg: 32
max: 60

In this game a single GTX 280 is could be faster than 8800GTX SLI.

I'm guessing the reason why they were using medium settings on Crysis and high settings for WiC is because of the framebuffer. For 2560 x 1600 it wouldn't suprise me at all if the GX2 tanked with higher settings. If I could check vram usage in Vista I would, but I'm not sure how to.

Yes, good point. When the reviews come out, I think that there won't be any situation where the 9800GX2 will have higher playable settings compared to GTX 280. In fact, I expect the GTX 280 to have higher playable settings most of the time in comparison (either more playable at higher resolutions, or more playable with higher levels of AA), and we'll see very soon from websites such as [H]OCP.
