After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Each benchmark was run using the default settings after a fresh boot of the test system. We ran the benchmark a minimum of three times and took the highest score. More tests are run if a large variance is discovered. As with any benchmark, your results may vary.
For comparison, I tested against a very popular NVIDIA offering the 8800 GTS 320, possibly the fastest 8800 GTS on the market today. As most of us will be using CrossFireX the scores show a dual GPU result, but for you multi-monitor types I also include some results with CrossFireX disabled to show the single GPU results.
