ASUS P5B Deluxe w/ QX6700 On X1950 Crossfire! Visionary Oct 5th, 06, 12:27 AM #1

Just managed to get X1950 Crossfire working on ASUS P5B Deluxe 965 board with the latest Catalyst 6.10 beta drivers : http://support.ati.com/ics/support/d...estionID=23354









Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700
ASUS P5B Deluxe (0706 Beta BIOS)
ASUS EAX1950XTX + EAX1950CF in Crossfire mode
GSkill PC8000 @ DDR2-1066 1GB x 2









Tried benching on the new Company of Heroes game. Pretty graphics intensive indeed.

Let me know what tests you wish to see and i will try to run them

Wow finally a driver that works x1950 Crossfire on 965!
Can you o/c Kentsfield to 3GHz and rerun 3D Mark 06? I wanna see how much the SM2/3 scores go up... the SM3 scores look very good with these new Ati drivers.

I think COH is a must bench next review!

Thats a sweet setup.

I am hoping you could do a few benchmarks for Autocad, as I understand it, Autocad has a few applications/commands that are multithreaded, and I would really like to see the performance comparison vs a dual core.

Thanks.
