X1800 Crossfire numbers revealed...

We managed to get one of the first Crossfire scores and interestingly, these two ATI cards were tested on a brand new but still not released AMD FX 60 CPU.

AMD will release its Athlon FX60 CPU in January and as Charlie reported before, it will be the first dual core FX CPU. It will have two cores but will end up clocked at 2.6GHz while the FX 57 is clocked at 2.8GHz.

Even though the FX 60 has two cores, the slower clock results in poorer performance. Two X1800 XT Master card edition in Crossfire with standard X1800XT scores 13560 with the FX 60 CPU while the FX 57 scores 14200 in 3Dmark05. It's very simple - the faster clock beats its competition.

Two 7800 GTX 256 cards in SLI will score some 13500 in SLI on an FX 57 but we are not sure how much two 7800 GTX 512 cards can score in SLI as our system crashes every single time we plug these two cards in together, while not many people have managed to grab two of them anyway.
