NVIDIA Quad SLI Take Two - 9800 GX2 up to bat

Author: Ryan Shrout
Manufacturer: XFX


Bioshock (DirectX 10)

impressive FPS-based game with a great story, Bioshock impresses with
both graphics and its ability to drag you along in the gameplay.  It
has both DX9 and DX10 render paths and should make a great benchmark
for graphics cards promising the best of both worlds.

NVIDIA's Quad SLI results in Bioshock are decent but not spectacular.  The scaling going from a single 9800 GX2 card to a pair of them really only shows up at the top 2560x1600 resolution gaining us about 25% on the average frame rate and adding a bit of smoothness to a system that already did pretty well at these IQ levels.  Compared to the AMD configurations the Quad SLI scaling is better but AMD's CFX solution is still running faster.
