That is near 100% scaling in CrossFire. That is impressive. I remember when SLI first came back the scaling wasn't very good, maybe 50%. Any chance you would want to do a write up of which scales better, AMD or nVidia?

HEy, I was hoping to get some help here about my card(s).

So I have 2 AMD Radeon HD 7950's in crossfire. Overclocked to standard. 800/1250.

Now my question/problem is, what's the max temperature these can get + why does my game freeze after some time playing? (D3)
I don't have any other problem with any other games.
Is there a way to see what the problem really is, if so please reply, I'll check by once and while.

Thank you.

Sounds like it might be hitching because of the known 7xx0 issues.

Or it could be that your overclocked cards aren't quite as stable as you thought.

The 13.2 beta drives have performance issues in Far Cry 3, so if you don't play that game then go for them!

But okay, thank you!
