They are pretty impressive in crossfire, especially in Metro, I thought there was something wrong with the results when I saw they were on par with a 590/6990 .

If you want a cheap crossfire set up for £202 two of these are worth it, but for a single card, as said in the review the 6850/70 are the better cards to go with.

Would you say that these 2 cards at idle are quieter than a reference 6950, and would on the whole perform better? I wonder how these cards would perform @ 5760 * 1080 across 3 monitors (not maxed out obviously)?

these are good results for sure.....im just wondering how realistic they are tho???

im not so sure that anyone considering these cards has an X-58 mobo and i-7 [email protected] backing them up......

now if you used an AMD Pii 955 X4 would your results be the same???

im not say'n.......im just say'n

Well they are realistic because they are the results we obtained. However although we can understand that the kind of person seeking out a setup such as this is unlikely to run X58, that is our test setup. If we changed the underlying system every review then we couldn't compare anything to anything else and would be swamped with "but how does it compare to the xxx ??". At least this way each card is, driver changes aside, reviewed on the same rig and so you get a pure performance comparison.
