Hot on the heels of Eurocom’s Radeon HD 6970M CrossFire-based launch, AVADirect promises even bigger performance using pair of GeForce GTX 485M modules in SLI. Can Nvidia reclaim the performance crown at a lower price than its competition's flagship?
This generation of GeForce mobile graphics modules is potent at our lowest Crysis setting, with a single GeForce GTX 485M exceeding the performance of a CrossFire pair of Radeon HD 6970Ms. The GeForce GTX 470M’s single win was likely a fluke, yet the system is no longer available for re-testing.
CrossFire rises to the middle at 1680x1050. Our test notes show that dual GPUs are required to play this resolution at Very High details and 4x AA.
The GeForce GTX 485M SLI-based setup keeps its crown through the notebook panel’s native 1920x1080 resolution. Our test notes suggest that only the two top solutions were able to play the game at our highest setting without noticeable stutter.
