FarCry2 2560x1600 SLI (Updated) X58 SLI Test On Crysis Warhead & Far Cry 2

Next, we checked out the performance of GeForce GTX 280 SLI on the Core i7 965XE/ ASUS P6T Deluxe X58 board setup. We can observe that at “Enthusiast Mode”, Crysis Warhead is mostly GPU limited and is almost unplayable at 2560×1600 resolution. For Far Cry 2 with settings at “Ultra High”, 1600×1200 and 1920×1200 resolutions are becoming CPU limited while at 2560×1600 resolution, it is balanced between the CPU and GPU. Let us know what benchmarks you would like to see.

Updated : We have updated with some single card scores and we can observe that the benchmarks scale nicely between single and dual cards except for Crysis Warhead @ 2560×1600 resolution where SLI GTX280 succumb to stress.
