lets say after I read about it and looked it over I'm not impressed. It's vista only and DX10 only. The free copy can only run once on a PC forcing you to buy a copy. If you look at how it scores CPU's you can clearly see it does not give much points more for dual or quad CPU over single. This is the worse benchmark program I have ever seen.

Well I have it, will run it just for the same reason I run other benchmarks, just to $hits and giggles.

killswitch, is that with the 3870's in crossfire?

It's also pretty clear that the cpu score doesnt make much difference.

Yes he has 2x 3870's in Xfire. I have an SLi setup and our scores are very close. I don't think a lot of times software cares about anything over a dual core CPU, but very soon some will start. Far Cry 2 will be one to utilize quads.

Well I scored about 5700 in Vantage before. This post shows the change in motherboard only, as everything is stock as before. What I gained here is impressive seeing as the only real difference is having both video cards @ x16 PCIe 2.0 and x16 PCIe 2.0. The 5700 score was both video cards @ x8 PCIe 1.0 and x8 PCIe 1.0.
