It’s all exactly the same in the second test. We can’t say quad-SLI technology doesn’t work. It provides a certain performance gain over the single GeForce 7950 GX2, yet this gain is too small to justify the purchase of a second card for over $500.
The small advantage of the quad-SLI system over the single GeForce 7950 GX2 diminishes almost to zero in the third test whereas the CrossFire platform shows its best. Perhaps the quad-SLI system will have a higher speed at the default driver settings, but as we wrote in our previous review, the default settings produce an awful texture filtering that is far inferior to what the competitor offers.
