techPowerUp! have taken a look at Quad SLI and compared it to X1900 XT CrossFire. Overall Quad SLI looks to be very disappointing indeed, at least at launch. CrossFire or just plain ol’ SLI are much better options at this early stage. I’d give Quad SLI another two months to mature before i pass judgement, but even so, why launch it now in such a disastrous state? Anyhow, read the review to find out the details.? Snip: At this year’s CeBIT the most controversial and most debated new hardware was NVIDIA’s Quad-SLI, which was awarded "best product of CES" earlier this year. We had the chance to put two identical retail 7900 GX2 QuadSLI and X1900 XTX CrossFire systems right next to each other and evaluate them. One of the surprises was that often one 7900GX2 alone performed better than the Quad SLI pair at low resolutions. Full review @ techPowerUp!
Snip: We get a chance to look at one of OCZ’s top performance 2x1gb ddr1 kits, the Platinum 4000EB. OCZ has left a good impression on us, these modules do not change this: Good performance for a good price is always a winning combination. Full review @ EclipseOC
