XFX Triple SLI - 8800 Ultra's in 3 Way SLI
Unreal Tounament 3 and Crysis
Unreal Tournament 3
I have included UT3, even though it is another UE3 game as it is a fast, frantic and furious multiplayer mash-up experience. Using advanced DirectX 9.0c features, the Unreal Engine looks fantastic and runs on almost all half-decent modern GPU's making it an ideal all-round test.
Tri SLI again shows that it does the trick with a high amount of AA, although the UE3 engine doesn't really need that much GPU horsepower.
Crysis has to be our most challenging benchmark to date. Running under Windows Vista and using DirectX 10 path, I tried running tri SLI at 1920 x 1200 at "Very High" settings, no AA and also at 1920 x 1200 "high" settings.
Tri SLI was unfortunately unable to play Crysis at "Very high" without AA without feeling laggy. Whilst the average FPS is 18, it was faltering and not easy to play with, dropping to 4FPS at points.
"High" settings was much more playable and looked great at 1920 x 1200, which is still higher than most other cards can comfortably play Crysis at.
