Nvidia 8800 Ultra Triple-SLI benchmarked!

The German print and online magazine PC Games Hardware had the opportunity to bench Nvidia’s triple-SLI. The benchmarks have been done using Crysis and some other games. Unfortunately an unreleased Crysis build with number 5837 was used which seems to be optimized for triple-SLI. This new patch will be publicly available in a couple days.

So far only the 8800 GTX and 8800 Ultra are capable of running triple-SLI. What else is needed to run triple-SLI?

– 3 Geforce 8800 GTX or Ultra cards
– a 3-way-SLI_Connectorboard (or as a alternative: 2 very short and 1 very long SLI-bridge)
– a mainboard with 3 PCI-E-x16-slots (680i or the upcoming 7x0i)
– the right Forceware driver (in this case 169.18 was used)
– a PSU that is strong enough to provide enough juice =)

Nvidia recommends using at least a 1,100W PSU. The Thermaltake Topower that was used in the test was really stressed. The kill-a-watt-device showed a total power consumption of 819W.
