As some of the other guys said in here, I am also curious in seeing some sort of benchmark between the A64's and the Core2 chips.

If we can come up with a solid benchmark loop or something, then it should be easy to get a good comparison. (captain obvious)

SLI appears to work here. The fact that NVTray reports my GPU temps rising about the same, and the SLI load balancing bars appear. Those are both good signs that SLI will work in this game. How well it works is yet to be determined however. We could use a new optimized SLI profile from NVIDIA.

Of course none of that is possible in FSX due to its, still, *****ty netcode. Virtual pilots who want to practice checklists and talk with the tower fly FSX, those who want realistic immersion (and fighter jets) fly LOMAC.
