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

CrossFire Platform Performance: Crysis

The X58 platforms fall significantly behind at our lowest Crysis settings, though these are too CPU-bottlenecked to show the benefits of a third card.

CPU bottlenecks continue to hold back the X58 platform, even at our highest Crysis test settings, though GPU limitations play a role in the poor scaling of the third GPU. P67 leads, and the NF200 PCIe bridge helps it slightly.
