We've heard it said before that AMD's GPUs are more platform-dependent than Nvidia's. So, what happens when you drop a Radeon and a GeForce into an FX-8350-based system? Does AMD's CPU get in the way of its GPU running as well as it possibly could?
CrossFire performance scaling is tighter than SLI scaling in Metro 2033. Although this applies to both Intel and AMD CPUs, only the FX-8350 is able to pull down a pair of Radeon HD 7970s to the frame rates a single Radeon HD 7970 achieves. That’s a shame, since the company’s Tahiti graphics processor appears more powerful than the GeForce GTX 680's GK104.
