Ya...

(-_-lll I guess so, since 2x CF the most you can get is only 70-80% of the second card.

Then what about Quad-Fire? Scaling is worse or better?

No idea. But dual setup probably gives us an idea.

There is no way to get 100% scaling. Even if its possible, no manufacturer is stupid enough to do it, since it has the potential will kill off sale for their higher end products

Does anybody know what case is used? It looks a bit like Thermaltake Swing - but not exactly like that.

confirm worse because there are more overhead and other stuffs. Think about it this way, even a quad core doesn't have 100% scaling on a single piece of silicon, there is no way 4 piece of silicon running on 4 PCB and link together with a few cables can ever get close to that.

quad crossfire is somewhere near to 3.3x performance gain. which i think can last for 1 year before a single card solution can beat it.
my rig: it isn't an oil rig. how i wish it was.
