[hothardware] Asus Trinity tested (3x HD 3850)
Hothardware got a prototype of the Asus Trinity. This card got three HD 3850 chips on a single board.
Asus uses notebook GPUs with an MXM format for this project. The Trinity has three HD 3850 chips on board. There is no information about clock speeds or available memory. Something quite irregular are the four DVI ports. A closer look reveals two Crossfire bridges. Thermaltake's Big Water is used to cool the prototype.
Unfortunately there are no details about the testbed that was used for the benchmarks, but the pictures indicate an Intel based system, an Asus motherboard and Corsair Dominator memory.
For lack of comparative results, the benchmarks don't give a clear impression of the capabilities, but Hothardware talks about 48 percent better performance in Company of Heroes - compared to a single HD 3850. Furthermore it becomes obvious that the performance of the card depends on the driver's performance.
