    After dragging my dead old x58 out of cold storage and giving it a new SSD and fresh Windows 10 64Bit and overclocking the Xeon X5660 back to 4.2Ghz with 6Gb of Triple Channel DDR3 1600Mhz ..( more coming as Relive pulls the fps down)

    So in slot 1 we have RX 570 8Gb and slot 3 RX 570 4Gb as they keep a nice 2 inch gap between them on my Evga x58 e758 3 way SLi ( March 2010 ) and power is Corsair TX 950 Watt also driver is 19 .4.1

    This is Vulkan in 1080p Ultra and I will upload DX 12 soon .. I have my games on a Seagate 1Tb Passport hooked to a very slow USB ,,,



    edit to add DX 12 in CX as my very 1st run was 171fps and rerunning the benchmark with ReLive on pulled my fps down to what you see . 12Gb will be here Tue I hope before adding the 3rd RX 570 to test scaling .

    Also I hope you find this info useful as my purpose of showing it as I been an OG of SLi /CX and Eyefinity along time .



    and DX 12 game play ,

    I grabbed the new 4.6.1 Beta 2 and make sure it's working in game before starting Relive for me .. DX 12 is very stable with it running but Vulkan does not like it I can tell , Vulkan is way faster and I think I may need to change the fan profile on the video cards from default as 1306/2000 is fast for RX 570 with the 150 watt board layout as the game crashed and Radeon driver reported changes .. but for sure the Xeon is feeding them to reach full 80c temps as they have 2" air gap .

    The Vulkan video is uploading .. so check back for that one .

    I just seen a review by Hardware Unboxed using a i5 9400F vs 2600X / 2080Ti and from what I can tell it is that level of performance in Strange Brigade at 1080p Ultra .

    I got my 12Gb of memory in today and I just powered down and dropped them in the empty slots and fired it up without even backing off the system overclocks and it post with 18Gb in Triple Channel at 1600Mhz ..

    edit.. I backed the clock off the 570's to default so going forward as I may drop a 3rd card in soon and retest..

    also I saw this link https://amdcrossfire.fandom.com/wiki/Crossfire_Game_Compatibility_List and I own a few of those which I will test as I build from the list as to have a library of CX games as give the platform use as I downloaded Just Cause 2 and ran all 3 benchmarks and some just noob city game play .. but for DX 10 maxed out at 1080p on my curved 27" Samsung with freesync this game rocks now with more modern gpu's and drivers as I got this free with my 460GTX I think It was .

    I made a new video as I never played this game but owned it for years as it came free with something .. It is so freaking smooth and just as fun to me as the new games like Division 2 and now downloading Sniper Elite 3 for the RX 570's to eat on.

    I had to cap Tomb Raider { 2013 } at 157fps in game profile as anything higher and blue starts to shows in ReLive as to override the red and hair will turn blue as I guess 72Hz is getting out of spec that fast .

    Sniper Elite 3
