Wow, what a difference a generation makes.  World in Conflict has always been accused of being too CPU bound to be any good, but these results paint an interesting picture of the situation.  At 2560×1600 the competition can’t even get in the same hemisphere as the GTX 280 is 4x faster than the GX2 and 3870 X2.

Just as the GTX 280 card showed really impressive results in World in Conflict, so does the GTX 260 card.

Well, even though I loved the performance of the GTX 280 and GTX 260 in single card configuration, the SLI results are a major let down.
