Intel Core i7 with 3-way SLI and Quad-Crossfire reviewed

The combination of Intel's Core i7 with 3-way SLI or Quad-Crossfire shows two things: the by far best 3D performance and what the Core 2 successor really is capable of in games.

Core i7 with 3-way SLI/Quad-Crossfire: Introduction
As our Nehalem review reveals, Intel's Core i7 dominates the competition in applications or synthetic tests (especially because of SMT). But in games the Core 2 successor is often constrained by the graphics card. Even a Geforce GTX 280 is "too slow” in 1,280 x 1,024 without FSAA/AF - the Nehalem cannot show off its capabilities.

So we combined the i7-965 EE and the QX8770 with two, three or even four GPUS in order to reveal the real power of the Nehalem. At the same time (3-way) SLI and (Quad)-Crossfire show what modern graphics card setups are able to do. In both cases the results are more than impressive - although there are some little problems.
