    Pretty expected performance, right? Or maybe slightly disappointing? ;) I thought it would have a liiiittle more UMPH!! and ROAR!! :lol:

    Yeah I was expecting it to be a little faster relative to G80/G92 than those scores suggest. Not bad but it's definitely vulnerable to RV770.

    We're sorely lacking the games to justify this hardware though. If RV770 can provide 100fps at $200 instead of GT200's 150fps at $600 then we all know who comes out the winner there....

    I expected the GTX280 to be faster than that, the stock GTX280 was slightly faster than the GX2. But I am not going to draw any final conclusions yet - the drivers might improve ("old" drivers was used in the review). Maybe I was just a bit too optimistic about the GTX280 performance, when I expected more than the 2xG92 that the specs indicated.

    The load powerconsumption was in the also same range as the GX2 - I expected some effiency improvements under load too, . Idle consumption is good.

    Maybe due to CrossfireX not scaling equally good on all Crysis-scenes?

    edit:
    Did some digging - in those two links - and it turns out, that 9800GTX is in both cases 58-59% percent faster than a single 3870, so it seems quite obvious that they used different scenes and crossfire-scaling is the determining factor.
    As already shown here:

    just fyi but w1z runs Crysis tests on his own custom timedemo iirc so the #'s arent going to be with what you see elsewhere

    Yeah and later W1zzard had this to say:

    Anybody who has an 8800GT/8800GTX knew their was no way to get the listed fps at those resolutions in the benchmark.

    Try running Age of Conan at 1920x1200 on max settings with HDR and AA then.

    Age of Conan is a mess. The graphic engine is horrible. Although it looks good.

    But just how much additional tweaking to the drivers would need to be done? Nearly all of the ratios are about the same and there aren't any real hardware changes. The drivers for the most part should be almost the same as the old ones.

    There are only so many ways you can run data through a scalar processor.

    Maybe it's just people checking to see that it runs with a certain configuration? Surely you remember how big of a hassle it was to get the first GPU client to run on X1900s.

    Hi Desert SoCal
    didn't FW 75.80 give some good performance boosts anyway; even to Oblivion?

    i just [now] got an email from a friend that says Crysis runs much better for him [even somewhat "playable" at 19x12 with his SLI'd 8800GTXes he could not get before].

    i absolutely cannot confirm as i am back on powered by AMD. i am depending on his report.
