NVIDIA SLI & ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Performance Showcase
Doom 3 Benchmarking
Again, Doom 3 runs in AFR mode with our dual GeForce 6800 cards, in SLI on the ASUS A8N-SLI nForce4 motherboard. NVIDIA's edge in Doom 3 has always been significant versus ATi solutions. Let's see what SLI does to widen that gap.
We don't even have to do the math for you here. The numbers don't lie, and this is one scenario where the marketing boys were actually speaking mostly the truth! With AA and AF enabled, you're looking at a 2X SLI performance lead over ATi's fastest card and nearly that (80% or so) as compared to single GeForce 6800 series performance. If you're a "Doom 3er", this is nirvana but for a price. Because there will most likely be more than a few titles based on the Doom 3 engine coming to market in the next few years, this performance profile for NVIDIA's SLI solutions is only that much more significant, as well.
Can you believe 1,600 x 1,200, with all the eye candy turned on, with AA and AF, at 75 - 83 frames per second?? Believe it...
