dual 9800GX2 vs. 3-way SLI 9800GTX Tags: Graphics Cards Drivers SLI Graphics Last response: April 23, 2008 2:02 PM in Graphics & Displays Share bpogdowz April 23, 2008 3:28:47 AM any sites done benchmarks with the graph things? are the drivers supporting 9800GX2 SLI out yet? More about : dual 9800gx2 sli 9800gtx STRKR April 23, 2008 3:54:43 AM I think it would mostly depend on the game. But dual GX2 has 4-gpu as compared to the 3 in the Tri-SLi. And Tri-SLi doesn't seem to scale very well in the only game that needs more than 1 (or 2) GPU, Crysis. tjoepie April 23, 2008 10:37:03 AM I think it does very well in Crysis according the amandtec review: http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3275&p=5 The thing with the GTX is you can find factory OC cards like EVGA 770Mhz, the max on the GX2 is 700Mhz I think. So in games that don't scale well the GTX will be better.

In fact, I don't think any games have true support for 3 GPUs... L1qu1d April 23, 2008 1:59:47 PM 3 way Sli actually does worse in some games than 2 Way sli. I think you'll see benefits at higher resolutions. btw wat do you mean the max is 700 mHz for the 9800 GX2 I have it easily at 740, I don't want to push it higher because its a new card. :| jay2tall a c 147 U Graphics card April 23, 2008 2:02:52 PM I'd say dual GX2's seem to do better. PLUS you do not need a Tri-SLI compatible motherboard either which is a savings. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
