New and improved, or just new

t-break wanted to know what improvements came about when nVIDIA switched from it's original SLI to SLI X16.  They tested 4 games, and several benchmarking tools with a pair of 7800GTX's, and have came to a pretty solid conclusion.

"We initially started out by conducting tests at only 0X and 4X AA however we really didnt see any

difference at all. We contacted nVidia about this and they suggested doing tests using 8X and 16X

AA and thus we went back and benched all four games using that setting as well. Besides Quake4, we

really do not see the X16 posting higher results in anything else. In fact, Serious Sam 2 and Call

of Duty 2 consistently showed the older nForce4 SLI performaing better in most of the benchmarks."
