CrossfireX with the HIS Radeon HD 5870 -- but you may call it X2 if you want to.
Hey hey hey now... so did you guys like our Radeon HD 5870 article or what? The one thing that was missing in our reference article was CrossfireX performance. Guru3D deliberately left out CrossfireX results as we really wanted to spend a day's more time on testing rather than rushing and bring you a full and dedicated article on a Radeon HD 5870 CrossfireX setup.
So our friends from HIS technology submitted another beast of a Radeon HD 5870 which we paired with the reference 5870 we already had tucked safely in our test system.
As such 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 come on admit it).
Multi-GPU performance you guys, will a pair of 5870 cards beat the pimping GeForce GTX 295? Yeah... of course they will, let's head on over to the next page where we'll tell a little about multi-GPU gaming, and then directly without any technical stuff dive into performance.
