Benchmark Results: Aliens Vs. Predator
The first strike against AMD’s three-way scaling comes in Aliens vs. Predator, where overhead appears to make the triple-card configuration lose a little performance.
Multi-card scaling usually improves at higher resolutions and details, yet three-way CrossFireX still falls behind CrossFire using a pair of cards. It appears as though this title uses only two of AMD’s cards, and that might be a problem with Catalyst Application Profiles. Excellent scaling realized on Nvidia's three-way SLI setup adds insult to AMD’s injury.
