P67, X58, And NF200: The Best Platform For CrossFire And SLI

CrossFire Platform Performance: Aliens Vs. Predator

AvP Benchmark still shows the three-way CrossFire previously noted in Triple-GPU Scaling: AMD CrossFire Vs. Nvidia SLI, awarding the lead to the basic P67 platform in a dual-GPU configuration. Favor thus goes to that platform’s Sandy Bridge-based CPU, with its on-die, 16-lane PCIe 2.0 controller.

The basic P67 platform’s leadership continues all the way through 2560x1600, in spite of the triple-channel memory controller and 200 MHz base clock used for overclocking on the X58 motherboards.
