Since I have a cheaply acquired HD 4870 X2 sitting here next to me, I thought it would be fun to challenge Techmaster to a little head to head benchmarking contest.
We're struggling a little here. Remember, these have to be standardized benches, such as the Crysis benchmark tool as two people will be running the tests. We're taking suggestions here but bear in mind that TM only has Crysis, Warhead and DiRT.
Xeon E3110 + TRUE.
Corsair 4x1GB DDR2 800
HD 4870 X2 and an HD 4850 for tri-fire if I need backup
Q6700 + Xig. Dark Knight
EVGA 790i Ultra
2x2GB DDR3 1600
I can do 1680x1050, 1600x1200, 1920x1200 and 1920x1600. I'm sure TM can run all those resolutions too. I don't really think 1280x1024 is relevant when comparing such monstrous cards, but if anyone's interested, we can do that too.
All pics of scores must be posted with CPU-Z and GPU-Z windows open.
This thread will be updated with our OCs.
