Not many mortals will ever have to worry about choosing between a three-way GeForce GTX 480
SLI setup, an equally numerous Radeon HD 5870
array, or a dual-card HD 5970
monstrosity, but we know plenty of people would care
about who the winner might be. Preliminary notes here include the fun facts that a 1 Kilowatt
PSU provided insufficient power for NVIDIA's hardware, while the mighty Core i7-965 test bench CPU proved to be a bottleneck in some situations. Appropriately upgraded to a six-core Core i7-980X
and a 1,200W power supply, the testers proceeded to carry out the sacred act of benchmarking the snot out of these superpowered rigs. We won't spoil the final results of the bar chart warfare here, but rest assured both camps score clear wins in particular games and circumstances. The source link shall reveal all.
