Where we are a little puzzled about the Radeon HD 6950 all by itself, but in CrossfireX this solutions seems to kick ass massively. See with two Cayman PRO GPUs on board you effectively can double up everything without being extremely CPU limited. Read article
We review the Radeon HD 6850 and 6870 in CrossfireX mode. Will performance double up ? Will modern games be properly supported ? And how much power do these multi-gpu setups really consume ? We'll find out all of it in todays test.
Meet the Powercolor HD5770 1GB GDDR5 Single Slot graphics card. Each card Radeon HD5770 is clocked at 850MHz, has a 1GB memory partition running at 1,2GHz (x4 Quad data rate gDDR5) over a 128 bit memory bus. Each card comes with a Display Port, DVI-I and HDMI allowing much flexibility monitor wise. The new cards are clocked at reference speeds as the new single slot coolers obviously have a little less cooling capacity opposed to the dual-slot version. Today we'll take a total of four of these cards and see what they'll do setup in multi-GPU-mode, CrossfireX. Read article
If you pick up three Radeon HD 5770 1024MB cards say at 150 USD, would that bring game performance into the uber high-end level? Well, we wanted to find that out. So we took a new eVGA P55 Classified motherboard which has plenty of PCIe x16 ports, popped in three Radeon HD 5770 1024MB cards and once again ran our test suite of software to see what performance scaling is like, and where we end up anno 2009 with driver issues, as there are bound to be at least a few of them. Head on over to Guru3D's 3-way Radeon HD 5770 CrossfireX review. Read article
Today we'll test and review the Radeon HD 5850; we'll check both the single GPU performance but also will check it out in CrossfireX multi-GPU mode. This card promises to go neck-to-neck with the 349 USD GeForce GTX 285 in terms of performance. The Radeon HD 5850 however comes with full DirectX 11 compatibility, Eyefinity and some sheer brutal rendering performance in both gaming and compute features. It's everything the Radeon HD 5870 really is, just a slight step slower but more affordable.
After the dust settled from yesterday's announcment, today we'll look into Radeon HD 5870 CrossfireX performance, scaling and compatibility in a dedicated article covering our entire benchmark test suite. The fun thing about this article will be the fact that it will almost EXACTLY tell us the performance of the upcoming Radeon HD 5870 X2 as well, which is one of the most anticipated cards by Guru3D aficionados, oh dude come on admit it.

Radeon 4850 and 4870 Crossfire review. Since Radeon series 4800 cards offer so much value, it might even be interesting to pair them in CrossfireX mode. See much like NVIDIA's SLI offerings, AMD's ATI solution can be paired and matched as well. So pretty much today we'll place several cards together in CrossfireX mode, first the cards paired (two) and then we'll for the sake of it see if we can pair three cards CrossfireX mixed, meaning 2x 4870 and one 4850.
