[H]ard|OCP just finished a review that most enthusiasts would sell their souls ... or at least cash in their retirement savings ... to do themselves. They decided to find out which was better, a $1500 triple GTX 580 system or a $1100 HD 6990 + HD 6970 system. The findings are really quite clear, as is th efact that scaling has improved to the point where dropping that third GPU into your PC actually does make some sense to do.
"We've seen what a Radeon HD 6990 can do when paired with a Radeon HD 6970 for "Tri-Fire" performance. Now it is time to find out what three NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 video cards in 3-Way SLI game like in comparison. We will look at A2A performance comparisons and discuss which setup offers the best gameplay experience."
