XFX Triple SLI - 8800 Ultra's in 3 Way SLI

Oblivion and Company of Heroes

Oblivion

Oblivion is a game that really taxed all of the cards at the time of its release. Well over a year on and the current generation of cards simply fly through it. However, with advanced HDR, excellent draw distances, detailed grass and scenery as well as fantastic water/magic effects it's a good game to gauge performance for those who love RPG's. Tri SLI + 8 x QAA should look fantastic!

As you can see, whilst the 4 x AA attempt isn't anything to write home about, the run-through's with 8 x QAA were basically the same FPS and as I predicted, looked fantastic.
 
Company of Heroes

Company of Heroes is a WWII-based RTS game that has an enormous amount of world detail. I played a DirectX patched version of the game that gives modern GPU's a bit of a workout.

Company of Heroes DX10 sees the Tri SLI setup sitting pretty at the top of the board by a fair distance, pretty fantastic.

I didn't even expect it to be that good, I am impressed! Crysis still chokes it on V.High too, that game is ruthless.

Maybe with the 9 series soon Ultras/GTX will get cheaper and this might be a viable option before we know it (to those who aren't swimming in money)Quote

Great read. The results do look good, and the comment about how the games `feel` is a better qualifier for me.

I`d not even entertain this, even with planning ahead months in advance to afford it. Does look nice tho hehe

Heat is an issue for me; power is crazy talk - but obviously a requirement, which is where the heat is going; drivers and/or a card being tempremental, I can do without, just don`t need it ontop of other pc dodgyness.

All said and done, I`m banking on the top end single card for the generation to come.

Be nice to see single slotted cards or wc solutions of this being tested.

Some fine benches too.Quote

Unless I came into some serious wedge then its not something i'd consider.. I'm with most here and reckon on a single card top end when it finally arrives.

Quick thing Matt.. Did you give overclocking it a go at all or would it have caused a total meltdown?Quote

The performance gains does not justify the price at all, i mean seriously why cant they just get standard SLI to just work properly before moving on to tri, quad and so on...

For this cash i would want to see stable FPS, not 40-500fps ranges, you look at any competitive gamer and the key thing for there setup is constant FPS, why else do you think most of them stick to the low 800x600 res?!?Quote
