ATI has lifted the wraps off the benchmark results of the RADEON X8-series in the CrossFire mode. The technology appears to work, but it has some serious limitations in its current implementation. Is dual-RADEON X850 XT setup worth buying, or is it better to wait till the new generation arrives? X-bit labs attempts to find out.
Performance in Simulators
Colin McRae Rally 2005
CrossFire also performs very well in rally auto simulator game – Colin McRae Rally 05 . Moreover, since the game is reach in relatively simple pixel shaders, which RADEON X850/X800 can handle just perfectly, the joint power of the CrossFire’s 32 pixel processors allows it to outperform even GeForce 7800 STX SLI in all modes and resolutions except 1600x1200 with enabled FSAA and anisotropic filtering.
