Benchmark Results: 3DMark Vantage

PCIe And CrossFire Scaling: Does Nvidia's NF200 Fix P55?

Like many of our other benchmarks, the 3DMark Vantage performance preset shows a decline from adding a third GPU with the P55’s native PCIe controller.

Things don’t look much better for the P55’s native controller at 3DMark’s High preset. Stranger still, EVGA’s NF200 implementation appears to beat MSI’s, which is totally opposite of what happened in actual games.

At the “Extreme” preset, MSI’s NF200 implementation outpaced even the X58, and this is where this tester must make an interesting observation: both NF200-equipped motherboards exhibited inconsistent results between consecutive runs of Vantage, and the cause for this inconsistency could not be determined.
