Gigabyte X58A-UD9 and GTX480 Quad Sli Review
Now this is a game that really punishes a weak system. The most surprising thing is how well it handles multiple cards. We can really see the UD9s ability to power 4 cards having the benefit we all hoped it would have. Once we get to three cards the framerate goes through the roof, and this is the only game on test that takes advantage of that fourth card.
Stalker Call of Pripyat
Clearly all the bugs haven't been fully ironed out of either Stalker, or the Forceware drivers. Call of Pripyat sent Fraps completely bananas with the average framerate being what we expected, but the minimum and maximum rates being all over the shop. So ridiculous was it we had to crop the graph otherwise those 1500+ maximum results made the normal scores invisible.
Perhaps the thing to take away from this is that two cards are plenty for Stalker.
Strewth. Ok let's wrap it up.
