GAINWARD AND GIGABYTE GTX 295 IN QUAD SLI

 

Introduction

 

This article was exciting to do for two reasons; the first was of course the fact that we were going to just see how powerful two of the fastest graphics cards on the market would perform when put together. This in total gave us four GPUs to play with across two cards and what this results in is a bucket load of power.

 

The second reason was that I would finally get a chance to take SLI for a spin on the newly built testbed. It's really been ages since I've had the ability to test SLI on my main testbed. It was great that the X58 closed that gap where we no longer need one motherboard for Crossfire and another for SLI.

 

We were fortunate enough to receive a GTX 295 sample from both GIGABYTE and Gainward, so with two cards in hand and a motherboard that supported SLI, we wanted to see some Quad SLI goodness, if not just for our readers.

 

The GTX 295 is impressive, but Quad SLI can really show a card and drivers' faults, so let's get straight into our test system and the results.
