o round out our Frame Rating testing in this interation, we are
looking at more cards further down the product stack in two different
sets. The first comparison will look at the AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz
Edition and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 graphics cards in both single
and dual-card configurations. Just like we saw with our HD 7970 vs
GTX 680 and our HD 7950 vs GTX 660 Ti testing, evaluating how the GPUs
compare in our new and improved testing methodology in single GPU
configurations is just as important as testing in SLI and CrossFire.
Quote: "I think the takeaway from the current state of Frame Rating is
that while AMD's single GPU graphics cards offer fantastic performance
per dollar, there is a fundamental problem with the CrossFire and
CrossFire + Eyefinity technology that needs to be addressed by AMD.
Even though there is still much research to be done on the subject of
the full effect of the results and the discrepancies we are seeing in
our CrossFire results, the fact is that something is fundamentally
different between CrossFire and SLI, and in my hands on time with
graphics cards over many years and over the last 18 months with this
capture capability, NVIDIA is doing multi-GPU better."
