Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

Our attempt to run this game on the quad-SLI platform leads to a considerable performance hit whereas the efficiency of the CrossFire system is near to the theoretical maximum.

The quad-SLI platform is in the lead, but the gap shrinks almost to zero in the resolution of 1600x1200 pixels. Both these multi-GPU platforms, Radeon X1950 XTX CrossFire and GeForce 7960 GX2 quad SLI, ensure a very comfortable speed in SLI AA 8x/Super AA 8x mode.

The quad-SLI platform looks good in this test. It is a rare case when 16x SLI AA mode can be used in practice, even though in 1280x1024 resolution only. The average performance of Nvidia’s solution is already below 40fps in 1600x1200. Meanwhile, the Radeon X1950 XTX CrossFire isn’t much slower than in 8x Super AA mode and easily gives out a frame rate of over 60fps in every resolution.
