Our Settings for GRID 2

2 GPU Testing

 

In GRID 2, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti does better scaling in SLI than the Fury X does in CrossFire at 2560×1440 though that shifts at 4K once again.

3 GPU Testing

 

Using three graphics cards at 2560×1440 we see a reduction in overall performance – not great. At 4K though NVIDIA is able to push a small advantage in average frame rate without pushing up the frame variance too much, but again AMD's Fury X card doesn't scale at all.

GRID 2 – 2560×1440
  Single GPU (FPS) 2-Way (FPS) Scaling 3-Way (FPS) Scaling
AMD Fury X 100 128 +28% 123 -3.9%
GTX 980 Ti 110 152 +38% 148 -2.6%
GRID 2 – 3840×2160
  Single GPU (FPS) 2-Way (FPS) Scaling 3-Way (FPS) Scaling
AMD Fury X 63 120 +90% 125 +4%
GTX 980 Ti 64 110 +71% 141 +28%

Today's table is a little different than recent ones as we are not comparing directly between the AMD Fury X and GTX 980 Ti, and instead we are comparing single GPU to 2-GPUs and to 3-GPUs. The resolutions are separated to make things a big easier to digest and the "scaling" columns show you how much performance improvement you see going from 1-to-2 GPUs and then from 2-to-3 GPUs.

The results at 2560×1440 are not exciting in anyway for 2-Way or 3-Way configurations though at 4K we definitely see the advantage of running a pair of high end GPUs.
