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

CrossFire Platform Performance Analysis

CrossFire gets a little more boost from the Sandy Bridge CPU architecture than previously seen in our SLI tests and, surprisingly, AMD’s graphics cards benefit more than Nvidia’s from the Nvidia NF200 bridge.

Though the benefits of an NF200 controller remain small, they do keep the P67’s CPU in the lead through our highest test settings. High resolutions are normally where differences in CPU performance would be diminished.
