  1. SLI is for Nvidia cards, and crossfire is for AMD cards.
    Neither is significantly better or worse.

    They are both neutral ?
  3. CF slightly better scaling than SLI..
  4. Best answer
    They both work about equally well.
    But, in my opinion, I would use neither if a good single graphics card will do the job.
    There are some issues involved with dual gpu's like microstuttering.

    I am having a great confusion and I am starting to worrying that about few weeks ago I bought MSI 970A-G46 motherboard and many are saying that it will degrade and may fry the Vishera CPU FX 8350. of bad VRM design Is it true? Is there any original American made Motheroard which can support FX 8350 not Taiwanese made or any South Asian countries...
  6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Btgo7E5m1_c like this on the msi board vrm issue?

    i have heard it too
  7. I hear frame limiters also help the Crossfire issue, but that was not tested in any of those articles, but I have a feeling that has its limits, depending on how low you drop the FPS.
