So, you've probably become accustomd to our testbed by now, so we won't go into too much detail. And since we have already looked at the cards, we know the clocks and other information.

GAINWARD AND GIGABYTE GTX 295 IN QUAD SLI

As you can see above, all four GPUs have been enabled and we're using the 181.20 driver which proved itself to be the best when it came to our single card testing. We didn't test under XP due to the driver we have used not currently having an XP version available.

The cards were left at stock speeds, so with everything said and done let's get stuck into the performance side of things to see how two of these bad boys go.

3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware.

3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.

GAINWARD AND GIGABYTE GTX 295 IN QUAD SLI

It doesn't come as any real surprise that Vantage sees some massive gains from the quad SLI setup. What we have here are the fastest Vantage scores we've seen in our labs to date, overtaking the Tri SLI efforts of the GTX 280 which offered us scores of P20534 and X12709 on a QX9650 @ 4GHz setup.
