Here is the timeline from the PenStar kickoff article.

Quote:
The articles from the other member sites will be released every other day, throughout the work week. Weekends will not see new articles, unless there is a delay in getting a particular article out. This Wednesday we will see Bit-Tech cover the GPU choices in depth, and this Friday B jorn3D will cover the motherboards used and their performance and feature-sets relative to each other. The Monday after that will see the start the graphics testing with Hard-Info, and will continue on through the Conclusion provided by Guru3D.

Quoted from NeoSeeker:

"Our contribution has us looking at a rough cross section of a few of the most played multiplayer games on both XFire and Gamespy, though we do cover a couple more recent high profile titles such as Oblivion. Not surprisingly, the titles at the top of XFire and Gamespy's list are not at the very bleeding edge of graphics - they require a certain amount of horsepower certainly, but these games are played by a wide range of users who have a variety of system capabilities. This puts our particular tests in a less exciting light as far as sheer horsepower tests are concerned, but it does make these results highly relevant and representative of what a large gaming audience can expect from Multi-GPU setups"

IMO nVidia really hit a home run with the 7950 GX2. I love this card.

For the price and performance it is the leader.

Yeah, brining SLI to the masses is awesome. Roughly the price of a single GTX (okay, it's a bit more, but still) and you get two of them. I wonder what ATI is going to do to counter, if anything?

This world tour is a really cool idea and a really great read!

I think this was a great idea!
Having read through the substantial info on the systems, motherboards, graphics, SLI and Crossfire, single card setups, and common benchmarks. I am looking forward to uncommon benchmark and application results. I know MikeC has been putting a lot of time in setting up various card configurations on different motherboards. The uncommon benchmarks and applications results coming from three different sites should prove to be interesting and I believe will be most informative.
