SLI Discussion

Recommended Posts

Hehe, I see a bunch of people on this board have boards with SLI capability but is anyone actually using that feature? I've heard you only get about half of the performance out of the second graphics card using SLI. If you have have an SLI board or you just have a lot of knowledge, post and inform thine bretheren! :)

Have SLI. 2x XFX 6800GT

 

Scores in 3dMark05: single card: ~5807

SLI: 10,579

 

So that puts that to sleep.

 

BTW, both scores are OC'd.

That was with old, Corsair RAM. Haven't tried with new OCZ rocket stuff yet ;)

tests that i've seen have shown roughly a 97% increase overall. there's a tiny bit of performance loss, therefore you aren't always going to get double the performance, but it's less than a lot of people make it out to be.

 

i don't remember where i saw the 97% figure, but i did see it somewhere, lol.
