Benchmark Results: Metro 2033

Intel Core i7-3960X (Sandy Bridge-E) And X79 Platform Preview

“So why not show what this system can do with three cards able to more fully populate the processor’s 40 PCI Express lanes, Chris?”

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get multi-card configurations working on our test board—likely a driver-based shortcoming that’ll be addressed closer to X79’s official launch.
