The fourth stop of nine on the Multi-GPU World Tour 2006 is up today over at HARDiNFO
. The boys over there have done the "common benchmarks" portion of the test.
In case you've been comfortably under a rock, the Multi-GPU World Tour is an effort by nine different sites to give an authoritative list of over 60 benchmarks between 6 different M-GPU setups. If you haven't read the first parts of this magnus opus, you can grab them here:
The "common benchmarks" are a series of industry standard, low fluctuation benches like timedemos, in-game benches, and 3dMark. HARDiNFO has released 544 different pieces of data for your viewing pleasure from over 70 hours of testing, outlining the performance of the cards. As has been with all of the Multi-GPU World Tour, everything has been very independent of ATI and NVIDIA, and all testing was done in-house.
I'd list the finer points of the article, but frankly there's a reason it's split between 9 sites - it's just too much. So step on over to HARDiNFO
