Default Triple SLI inspected: 150% more Fps in Crysis than single card

PCGH had the chance to test a Triple SLI system from Nvidia with 8800 Ultras inside. We even had the opportunity to benchmark Crysis with the yet to be released patch which helps SLI performance a lot. We managed to get 150% more Fps with the triple setup compared to the single card (screenshot enclosed). We were able to play Crysis in 1920x1200 (no FSSA/AF) in DX10 Very High with 37,9 Fps average and 14 Fps Minimun in “Paradise Lost”.

anybody caught buying a single 8800Ultra already has too money to spare
so what if he buys 3, at least his system is faster than the fastest out there and he gets to play all the games at highest quality without FPS.

Sounds like a Calantak setup to me


*why does every "next page link" on PCGH open a new window, lame site

It doesn't have the 2 SLI connectors which are required.
