GTX 470 SLI - Some great gains are seen at the highest resolution, but at 1680 x 1050 we saw a bit of a dip. We tested this multiple times and the worst result we got was 44 FPS minimum with the average being around 99 FPS.


GTX 480 - Across the board we see a nice bump in performance.


GTX 470 - We see a bump at the higher resolutions, but again at 1680 x 1050 the performance has dropped back slightly in the minimum department. Fortunately, the drop isn't as major as the SLI one.
