I have 3 7950's to run together, two sit on my desk. Second card merely draws power, doesn't truly improve FPS in the games I paly, actually makes for worse FPS visually in many situations. Basically, frames from second card never get displayed, and the CPU overhead from running two is definitely noticible when one card does just over 60FPS... as it makes that one card drop to just below 60FPS instead of just above.
I know AMD can fix it, but I do believe that they are making sure it's good and stable in most apps first, and that will take some time. They said June/July for that driver release.
And that's the kicker. AMD says it's a real problem. So there's no point in arguing about it. I know you're discriminate enough to notice the subtle change here.
It may have been the fact that I was enjoying playing BF3 I am now curious to see.
