I thought that two 9600GT's in SLi were much more efficient than two 8800GT's in SLi?  Doesn't the 9 Series make much more use out of the 2nd GPU?

According to one of FiringSquad's reviews of the 9600GT, the SLi setup is only marginally lower than an 8800GT SLi setup:



But, seeing that the price of the 8800GT has managed to slowly decline, it would most definitely be the better pick at this point.

Of course the 8800GT is a good card for the price. But the 3870X2 only getting 1 fps better than the 3870 seems a bit wierd, even though the Crossfirex driver hasn't been released yet.

Crysis isn't the best game to test SLI or Crossfire in.

I realize that.  There were several other games being benchmarked in the review I pulled these stats out of, but I wanted to show Crysis for the sole purpose of the fact that yes, it isn't the best came to prove SLi performance with.

I remember that I've studied about both SLI and Crossfire sometime ago , from the technical point of view Fire is superior to SLi but the reason behind the fact that Fire doesn't scale well most of the times is because of nVidian's strategy !!! The way it meant to be played , bla bla bla !!!
moreover you can't even play Crysis with 3*8800 Ultra in a reasonable resolution so you shouldn't refer to it as reference , moreover it doesn't scale that well with SLi as well .

The difference between 8800GT and 9600GT is not that much, I bet its only 10W.


best,
