Tri SLI Performance Results
We just know some of you out there are wondering what it would be like to combine all three cards in a triple SLI configuration. We don't like to disappoint our curious readers, and we were admittedly quite curious ourselves. So, we threw the ASUS ENGTX285 TOP, BFG GTX 285 OCX and Zotac GTX 285 AMP! into our system, and re-ran several benchmarks, focusing on ones we knew would scale in a tri-SLI configuration.
In the graphs below, you can see how the tri-SLI setup compares to all the other cards we tested. You can see that 3DMark Vantage and Crysis can definitely benefit from a third card in SLI while Far Cry 2 doesn't scale quite as well. This is likely a driven optimization issue more than anything else.
