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

CrossFire Platform Performance: F1 2010

Both processors bottleneck these graphics cards in F1 2010, even when the resolution is increased to 1920x1080.

We finally start to cross into GPU-bottleneck territory at 2560x1600. P67 wins only when equipped with the NF200 PCIe bridge, while the extra PCIe lanes resident on X58 almost negate the usefulness of that added component.
