Starting off with 3DMark 11, we can immediately see the excellent gains this CrossFire setup gives us. At the lower resolution Performance preset, we can see our Sapphire R7 260X 2GB OC in CrossFire setup pulls ahead of everything else here. Although, just as we saw with the single card setup, when we move to the higher resolution Extreme preset, it falls back a bit. In this case, you can see we sit a little behind the GTX 770 2GB.

3DMark Fire Strike

Version and / or Patch Used: 1

Looking at Fire Strike performance, you can see the numbers are good in comparison to the single card setup. Here we fall behind the R9 280X 2GB by a decent chunk at both presets. It's a bit of a mixed bag so far, and it will be interesting to see how the Sapphire R7 260X 2GB OC in CrossFire setup does during the remainder of our testing.
