I'd bet drivers as the best reason why the 4850CF had little gains in Crysis in that test. Also, given that the 4870x2 scales beautifully now in crysis compared to a single 4870, I'd bet that a driver release in not too long will improve Crysis scaling significantly.
both kinda suck
but personally ive had more problems with ati drivers...
the only game i mainly use for testing is crysis... which we know is nvidia biased....
however in the vista 64 environment....and even in xp32...ive had trouble with ati drivers in windows more frequently
Not a nvidia fanboy. Im very neutral and actually switch frequently. Although i do think ATI has more problems then Nvidia i bought a 4850. I had my bro and my other 2 friends buy one too and all 4 of us went to a lanparty with all 4850s.
Thx guys i actually didn't know the 4850 CF did so good in other games cause crysis is the first one I looked at before i got too disappointed to go any further
Now my second question is do two CF bridges increase performance over one single one?
