    Where is this comparison of crossfired 5870's (or 5850's) @ 16x/16x vs 8x/8x?

    You're not the only one. I can't find the scaling comparison for Crossfire either.

    I've been also wanting to see the results of crossfire scaling between 8x/8x vs 16x/16x. I don't suppose this will ever be tested?

    Hello, i am new here..

    I need info regarding 5870 cf on 32 bit system. As far as i guess... there won't be 6GB available in the review. Here my question, within the test session, how much the main memory size available for the system ?

    Sorry if my english is poor..

    think about it if on average u lose 2% at x8 that would mean a lose of 4% on average in crossfire compared to to x16/x16 so i would say 4% loss is tiny loss overall when CPU or Ram will make a bigger impact then x8/x8 compared to x16/x16 example i7 in multi gpu setups compared to Phenom II or Core2Quad :toast: you wont notice the difference

    i say this running 2 5850s in crossfire on a 790gx board comparing my setup to erockers who has a 4ghz phenom II compared to my 3.4ghz and a 790fx (x16/x16) to my (x8/x8) theres only a 4-5fps difference and this of course is at 1680x1050 with 8xAA so if that dosent give you a good answer nothing will

    erocker even went so far to clock his 965 down to my speeds and are fps were nearly identicle so the difference is unnoticeable in terms of gaming
