Charts, benchmarks Gaming Graphics Charts Q3/2008, Sum of FPS Benchmarks Totals

I was just surfing around the net, looking at benchmarks and found the above site. When looking at the details some of the results seemed odd. For example, the total FPS for the GTX 280 had more than that card in SLI. Also, it almost seems too good to be true with the 9800GTX+'s and 8800GT's. A pair of 9800GTX's in SLI would cost around $300 while a pair of 4870's would cost around $500. That would make sense if they allowed for much higher frame rates but according to this they wouldn't. Are these cards just that good of a deal or are the HD's more for resolutions of greater than the one's tested in these benchmarks (assuming the systems were kept constant)?

That is because the GTX sli setup wasnt used in as many benchmarks as the GTX setup. Thus there are more values to sum up for the GTX than the GTX sli. That makes the fps summation quite useless. I am not sure why they did it like that.

Yeah that is weird.. Ok then look at the benchmarks for Call of Duty 4. The 8800 GT's in SLI beat the 4870's in crossfire.

Some games are just funny like that. It's possible Crossfire either doesn't work with that game or that it for whatever reason really likes the twin 88's.

There's no argument over which card is better overall though. The 4870 beats the 8800GT, hands down.
