    The drivercleaner info I found only mentioned up to XP. Does dcleaner work on Vista?

    Edit: No worries. Just saw the Guru3d Driver Sweeper download, which is ok for Vista.

    Thanks Ghost :):):)

    Yeees, Crysis is 5fps faster in the benchmark :) That's a big jump because I have everything on very high except shadows. In the benchmark, it goes right up to 5fps faster.

    Tested in 3dmark 06 with my 2900XT and it's about the same... :( but I think some of the Guru's with 3870 x2's will see heaps of performance gain, especially in games.

    I wanted to pull some scores for you guys yet the drivers will not install 2x 3870 X2 properly.

    They seem to hang during installation.

    My 3DMark06 scores went down about 300 points but I haven't tried them in my games yet so I will hold back judgement until I try them out.

    Hilbert, did you use the uninstall manager to uninstall the previous drivers? Driver Cleaner has a few probs in Vista imo, when I just went into control panel and uninstalled, works better. Keep trying, working well for me, no 3dmark improvement but in games like crysis, they're very good:) Would be interested to see the x2's quadfire in action, keep us posted :)

    Hope it helps:)

    Ragdoll, no this is quad-gpu related.
    Got CrossfireX finally working now, but it's horrible. They should not release this driver. Installation took 25 mins alone.

    Games either don't work or can't even beat GeForce 8800 GTX SLI. Not good, I'll try some more stuff and then will add the games that did show normal behaviour in our VGA charts.

    Vista only, and it'll stay on that platform as well. XP has a DX backbuffer limitation that prevents it from using more than 2 GPUs.

    Are these the final release or an updated sample version? The file name suggest sample. Just wanna make sure before I go through all the hassle of installation on TRI- crossfire but it will be on vista 64. :(

    Those VGA charts are very good, thanks. I'm just wondering how, not that I'm complaining but my 2900XT performs faster in Crysis than even the 3870 x2 1GB. I get 49fps with even 4x AA at 1024x768. It was definately worth it getting a 2900XT.

    Thanks Hilbert :)

    CrossfireX results are not yet in there, you are looking at a single X2. But basically, when you add more GPU's there will be more CPU overhead as well.

    Up-to 1600x1200 therefore the resutls for MULTI GPU settups will often be lower than a single card due to the CPU bottlenecking it; hey it's the reality.

    After 1600x1200 the differnce will pick up in favor of multi-GPU solutions.

    BTW just tested Crysis in quad-GPU. Crashed.
