GeForce 9800 GX2 in Quad SLI Tested

By: Shawn Baker | NVIDIA SLI Articles in Video Cards | Posted: Mar 18, 2008 4:00 am

Final Thoughts


Officially, Quad SLI isn't due out till the 25th, so there is still a high chance that NVIDIA have another driver up their sleeves. We can see that we just couldn't play Crysis at 1920 x 1200 which is a bit of a bummer due to the fact that at medium I think we could have pulled out some decent numbers.


Crysis numbers were just literally draw dropping at medium. At one point, myself and the owner of iBuyPower managed to see the counter in Crysis get to 120FPS. We also saw Test 5 of 3DMark06 get 270FPS when we started to mess around with the system a bit more.


Since we were so hopped up on Dickens Energy Cider we still found ourselves with a spring in our step at 1am, so we thought we would do a bit of overclocking!


We tried 4.6GHz, then 4.8GHz but the system didn't really want to have a bar of it. The sweet spot was 4.4GHz. Quite a nice overclock from the stock 3GHz. We managed not only to scream past 20,000 3DMarks, but climbed up over 22,000 3DMarks as you can see in the picture below.



It was a long night, and while I had hoped to have cranked this article out last night, due to getting home at 3am it just wasn't going to happen.



Again, we have to thank our major sponsors of the night; Doritos, McDonalds, IBuyPower Australia and Dickens Cider Australia. Without them it would have been a long and boring night filled with starvation.
