When announcing the quad SLI technology at CES 2006, Nvidia Corp. stated that there are some gamers who desire to have extreme performance, quality and exclusivity, but did not begin shipping such products immediately. At CeBIT 2006 the company stated that the systems featuring four GPUs were shipping, even though not all system makers can supply such computers even now. Two announcements and several systems shipped to end-users later, X-bit labs is publishing the performance preview of the technology that made such a loud hype to reveal all the truth about it. Check out how a GeForce 7900 quad SLI performs against rivals in over 10 games.
Testing GeForce 7900 quad SLI platform in Far Cry was akin walking around a mine field. The platform did not like our demo recorded on the Pier level, it produced artifacts or crashed without HDR enabled. Surprisingly, it worked fine with HDR activated in 1280x1024 and 1920x1200 resolutions (but could not work in 1600x1200), which one again proves that the platform is pretty capricious at the moment.
The GeForce 7900 quad SLI manages to leave the Radeon X1900 XT CrossFire in 1920x1200 because of the raw computing power, however, such win comes amid great amount of instabilities.
