Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the cards weren't struggling before they will start to now.

Looking at Mafia we can see that 130 FPS wall is being hit, so a third card does almost nothing when it comes to extra performance.

 

Moving to Aliens vs. Predator, we see an awesome boost in performance and like a couple of other benchmarks, we can see that this equates to an almost 200% performance increase over the single GPU setup.

 

FarCry 2 sees some awesome performance as well and with AA and AF on, this continues to be a very intensive test, combined with great optimization we can see our minimum FPS increase translates to just over 200% more performance than the single GPU setup.
