I wonder if a 4890 at 1065/1205 would be better or worse than a 4870x2 at 800/990...
The 4870x2 does better. my buddy used to have 2 4890s we disabled one and tested that. I didn't win by much though.

But what was the 4890 clocked at?

Same thing as you suggested. I only won by like 5 or 6 points btw.

So they were at the same clocks?  That bench must not have had good crossfire support...  Well if my plans for a dedicated folding rig ever materialize, I can put the 450 into the folding rig and then do tri-fire on my gaming computer.  That'd be pretty epic.

We used the Unigine Heaven Benchmarker.

No wonder...  That's meant to be a DX11 benchmark.  Also it's a little too new for AMD to have made a crossfire profile for it because the 4870x2 is sadly a bit behind.

BTW, stock clocks for a 4890 are 850/975, so it's possible that that's why the 4890 was closer to the 4870x2.

The VRAM is mirrored in Crossfire and SLI setups.  ;)

One of my friends has a single 6970 and it maxes out basically any game worth playing at 60FPS (VSYNC on).  My 4890 maxes every game out too, but sometimes I get in the mid-20s in games like Crysis or S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Clear Sky.

I tend to like single-GPU setups because drivers always work a lot better for them. :P

Yeah I had to disable a card when Crysis 2 came out. :D But I can run it max at 60fps with Vsync. It would do a lot better if it wasn't for my CPU. :D
